How to pass objects from one JSP to another?

Dear experts,

I have a situation whereby I need to keep track of a thread and perform 2 actions:
start and stop, only after a click or selection has been done. In order to perform a start or stop
action on the next page, I would need to pass the thread object to the next page.
Is there any way that objects can be passed on to the next page?
Is "session.setAttribute("objectname", object)" workable to pass the THread to the next page?
Below are some codes tried out:
=============threadPage.jsp========================
<%
      SendRecvThread t = new SendRecvThread();
      session.setAttribute("thread",t);
      if(!t.isAlive()){
      
          %>
          <form action="startThreadAction.jsp" method="post">
          <p>Click Start to Start Thread</p>
          <p>
          <INPUT type="submit" value="Start" name="startButton" > </p>
          </p>
          </form>
          <%}//thread set alive
                else
                {
                 //thread alive
                 %>
                    <form action="stopThreadAction.jsp" method="post">
                 <p>Click Start to Stop Thread</p>
                 <p>
                 <INPUT type="submit" value="Stop" name="stopButton" ></p>
                 </p>
                 </form>
                <%
                 }//thread to be destroyed

                  %>

That's the way I'd do it :-)

Sticking Threads into the session always makes me worry though...

It should work fine, but make sure the threads can reach an end, as this will be one sure-fire way of locking up a server if you get lots of hits and the threads never finish ;-)

Please make sure that if session timeout or terminate. The thread that bind in session object will be stop. As Tim said it may lock server side resource.

You can test it by put thread in session and in the run() of thread try to loop print out something to stdoutput then close the browser and see in the stdout whether there still be printing or not.

If so, I recommend you to use listner class that trap the event session destroy and try to stop thread in that event.

best luck to you.

This is an example of a session listener:

Ignore the numberOfUsers malarkey, it's the sessionDestroyed thing you will need :-)

hehehe, i'm trying to write a really complex bit of code at work, so I keep finding other things to do (like press refresh on the JSP page) ;-)

Hi Tim,
According to this:
It should work fine, but make sure the threads can reach an end, as this will be one sure-fire way of locking up a server if you get lots of hits and the threads never finish ;-)

I have only one thread to monitor the system. I only need to terminate it at the end of the day by only one user.
So how can I actually kill this thread at the end of the day? Does it mean the user has to keep that session active until the thread is killed? Otherwise the thread cannot be remembered?

You could use
       application.setAttribute("thread",t);
in the first page. That way it will be accessable at the end of the day.  But as Tim  said
>but make sure the threads can reach an end  
So, maybe adding a timer  would be a safeguard just in case the user forgets to stop it.        rrz

Hi  mwcmp,
What i can suggest u is probably to have a application controller servlet thus all your request could be routed thru this servlet and on a particular selection u can start/stop the thread.  You then really don't need to pass thread objects across.

Good Luck
