I have a submit button on a error.jsp page. I'm trying to use the error.jsp for more the one possible error message display pages (have 3 servelts in the project). What I want to do is based on the strPage from a servlet either send to registerNewProjects.jsp if it = RegisterNewProjects or the index.jsp if it doesn't (which it won't coming from the other 2 jsps). This particular possible error message display is based on inputted data from the user.  I'm having problems getting the strPage (which is set RegisterNewProjects) to  from the servlet.

i'm using the below to call my script
<FORM name="myform" onSubmit="return page();">
           

<SCRIPT language="JavaScript">
function page()
{  
    if (request.getParameter("strPage")=="RegisterNewProjects")
       {document.myform.action ="registerNewProjects.jsp";}
   else    
       {document.myform.action ="index.jsp";}
        return;
 }                  
</SCRIPT>

jsp is executed on the server, whereas your jsp is executed on the client.
Try:

<SCRIPT language="JavaScript">
function page()
{
<%
    if ("RegisterNewProjects".equals(request.getParameter("strPage"))
    {
%>
      document.myform.action ="registerNewProjects.jsp";
<%
    {
    else    
    {
%>
       document.myform.action ="index.jsp";
<%
    }
%>
       return;
 }              
</SCRIPT>

Thank you. I had to modify it a little but it works. Here's what I did

<SCRIPT language="JavaScript">
function page()
{
<%
    if ("RegisterNewProjects".equals(getServletContext().getAttribute("Page")))
    {
 %>            
      
      document.myform.action ="/BMAP/jsps/registerNewProjects.jsp";
<%
    }
    else    
    {
%>
       document.myform.action ="/BMAP/jsps/index.jsp";
<%
    }
%>
     
 }              
</SCRIPT>
