Hi pretty new to jsp/java but hopefully someone will be so kind as to help.

I currently have a jsp file that imports in various class files from within a jar file ie

<%@ page import="java.util.*" %>
<%@ page import="com.webapp.loc.*" %>

Unfortunately I am unable to edit the class files due to licensing but would like to call one of the functions within a class file independtly, how would I go about doing this ?

The problem I have is that within the class file the function I want to run is within an if statement which again I have no control over so ideally would like to call the function independtly from the jsp page, the lis I would like to use is :

 write(Menu.midLine(env, page.getNodeMenu()));

The above ius stored in a class file called : pageR.class   this also import other class file to run the menu.midLevel etc


Thanks,  off now to read up on jsp/java.



Darren.

Can you provide some more detail please?

What is the method that you want to call?  What is the method with the "if" statement?

Need to ignore the if statement because I have no control of the value that is passed, basically I want to run :  

write(Menu.midLine(env, page.getNodeMenu()));

within my jsp rather than within the class file




Like I say I am a newbie to jsp/java so apologies if I am not making sense.  Usually work with asp and php.

If I got it right, you want to change the logic of compiled class, right? It seems to be impossible, you need to change the souce code and recompile it.

Ah.

Is the write() method providing output that should be included in the HTML?

If so you could either do:

<%
    out.print(Menu.midLine(env, page.getNodeMenu()));
%>

or

<%= Menu.midLine(env, page.getNodeMenu())) %>

I could do that but then I would be breaking the license of the web app.

I just want to run the line :

write(Menu.midLine(env, page.getNodeMenu()));

from within my jsp page and that will use the class files.


Currently the line is within a class file but is within an if statement so for my requirements I can't use therefore I would just like to add this line directly in the jsp page which will run the calls from the class files, make sense ??


privatee from within class file pageR.class

private void pageH(Env env)
    {
        if(!onlyUse)
                    write(Menu.midLine(env, page.getNodeMenu()));
        }      
    }

I can't control onlyUse but inside want to run the line within this.


Thanks for help.


Darren.

You'll have a problem if write is not public.

Ignore my last comment.  It depends on what write() does.  Let us know what happens when you try the code from my earlier comment.
