hi all,

i'm trying to seperate my business logic layer (servlets) from my presentation layer (jsp) .
for example, if my servlet has a recordset of student records, how do i pass it to a jsp to be displayed ?
i know it can be done in frameworks like spring, but is it achieveable without a framework ?

Stick it in the session:

  session.setAttribute( "myobject", list ) ;

Why?

You can also stick it in the request object (if the servlet and the jsp are called via the same request)

  request.setAttribute( "myobject", list ) ;

sorry ... din occur to me i can clear the session variable after i receive it.
i was imagining there would be memory problems.

if your jsp calls a servlet, passing it the request object you can put stuff in the request object
