It should be the same way as in any .jsp

String user = (String)request.getParameter("user");

The included page has access to all objects in the request scope as well as all original request parameters.

hi lakeryu

just a note for you to consider though, do you really want to use <jsp:include /> tag which is processed at runtime, or would you rather want to use <%@ include %> tag which is prcessed at compile time...

the performance of the compile time option is much faster...
