Servlet Container return Null for empty string after upgrading weblogic 5.1 to 8.1

Servlet Container return Null for empty string after upgrading weblogic 5.1 to 8.1. Think This is due to Java 1.4 NIO libaries. because weblogic 5.1 dont use NIO. or This can be a Issue with Servlet Container. I already update my weblogic.xml, and ORACLE drivers
    <jsp-descriptor>

                 <param-value>false</param-value>
          </jsp-param>
     </jsp-descriptor>
Please help me on this.

Hi,

we also have the same problem in our application(s)... I think you have only one way to do this...

After variable "abc" validated, then check for abc value...

if (abc == null) abc = "";

thats all you can do it, this is new change in Weblogic 8.1.

i hope it may help you..

you are write , i noticed the difference in both while comparing weblogic6.1 with 7.1 and tomcat 4 with tomcat 5.
point 1 : your nesting seems to be wrong conceptually , test it. (i ahvent used 8.1 so i am not sure). ur startup doesnt complain coz the mark up appears to be wrong. ??

check this url out...
http://www.javapractices.com/Topic176.cjp

using c:out doesnt display null.
i know the problem is in ur servlet but this may help..

Thanks for your comments but My problum still the same. Is there a way to make Servlet Containiner assume "" as empty string.

The below mentioned servlet code-segment works well in both 5.1 & 8.1 , except for 1 small diference... The 'null' appears as a String in Weblogic 8.1, and as ' ' in 5.1, We have developed many thousands of servlets around this concep

--------------------------------------------------------------
ServletOutputStream out=null;
try{

    String abc = null;
    res.setContentType("text/html");
    out = res.getOutputStream();
    out.println("<html><body><br>");
    out.println("");
    out.println(abc);
    out.println("</body></html>");
}catch(Exception er11){ }
---------------------------------------------------------------
