I tried;

<jsp:include page="test.jsp" flush="true"/>
        <jsp:param name="stage" value="red"/>
          </jsp:include>

And it comes up null in the include???

Here's how I'm calling it in the include:

String stage = request.getParameter("stage");

So it's coming up null even with a literal (as above)?

I figured out why I was having problems, for some reason, I had to remove the "/" in the include call:

<jsp:include page="test.jsp" flush="true">
        <jsp:param name="stage" value="<%=stage%>"/>
          </jsp:include>
