If you want to define a new scriptlet variable based off one of your available beans, you can use the <bean:define> tag.  For example, the following will assign the value of someBean.getSomeProperty() to the scriptlet variable "somevar"

   <bean:define id="someVar" name="someBean" property="someProperty"/>
   <input type="hidden" name="bleh" value="<%=someVar%>"/>

BTW - the second line  above (the <input> tag) is just an example of how to reference the scriptlet variable (it has no meaning other than that)
