Dear Experts,

I have a JSP which execute the sendRedirect() command to call another JSP page. I would like to know if I can get the name from first page, when I'm executing the second page.

For example,

My first page :

<% ...

My second page:

<% out.println("The name from first page is : " + firstPage);  /* How to get firstName string? */ %>
