Passing A Value -- HELP!

Greetings!

I'm getting the following error:

Error:         java.lang.NumberFormatException: For input string: "<%cPk%>"
Reason:        For input string: "<%cPk%>"

Basically I aimed to pass a hidden value from one application to another, in order to hide the URL location from users' browsers.

I used a "POST" form instead of a "GET", and used the correct input tag - <input TYPE="hidden" name="cPk" value="<%=cPk%>">

However, I suspect that the value of cPk, a primary key, is not being correctly passed  in the proper format .. although I made the types consistent in my code (and when I hardcoded a number value, I know conceptually this thing should actually work):

Here is the relevant code from the class in the first application:

=========================================================================================
   protected Double cPk;

   public Double getCPk() {
        return cPk;
    }

    public void setCPk(String getCertificateUrl) {
        cPk = new Double(getCertificateUrl);
    }
    public String getCertificateUrl() {
        String cPk = certification.certificationPk().toString();
        //String url = "https://hostname/etc/WebObjects/PDFGenerator.woa/wa/viewReport?cPk=" + cPk;
        //String url = certification.certificationPk().toString();
        return cPk;
    }
========================================================================================
   and here is the relevant code in the second application:

========================================================================================
protected Double cPk;

private NSArray lookupCertification() {      
        // Lookup Certification via cPk
        return fetchSearch("getCertificationPk", "Certification", "cPk", getCPk(), this.session().defaultEditingContext());
    }
   
    public Double getCPk() {
        return cPk;      
    }

    public void setCPk(String newCPk) {
        cPk = new Double(newCPk);
    }
========================================================================================
and here is some more relevant code from another class:
========================================================================================
public void takeFormValues(NSDictionary value) {
        java.util.Enumeration e = getValueList().objectEnumerator();

        while (e.hasMoreElements()) {
            String key = (String)e.nextElement();

            Object obj = context().request().formValueForKey(key);
            if (obj != null) {
                takeValueForKey(obj, key);
            }
        }
    }
========================================================================================

I am ripping what little is left of my hair out ... I suspect the issue is trivial but the cause of the error is beyond me.

Any advice and or guidance would be greatly appreciated!

Best regards,
nearly hairless jamie

>>String url = "https://hostname/etc/WebObjects/PDFGenerator.woa/wa/viewReport?cPk=" + cPk;

should probably be

String url = "https://hostname/etc/WebObjects/PDFGenerator.woa/wa/viewReport?cPk=" + java.net.URLEncoder.encode(cPk, "UTF-8");

and use the corresponding decoder on the other side

If that doesn't work, please post value of cPk

/**

        return cPk;
    }

    public void setCPk(String getCertificateUrl) {
        cPk = new Double(getCertificateUrl);
    }
    public String getCertificateUrl() {
        String cPk = certification.certificationPk().toString();
        //String url = "https://hostname/etc/WebObjects/PDFGenerator.woa/wa/viewReport?cPk=" + cPk;
        //String url = certification.certificationPk().toString();
        return cPk;
    }**/

You define cPk as Double at class level and in getCertificateUrl method u r using it as String

Check if this gives problem to u

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

<input TYPE="hidden" name="cPk" value="<%=cPk%>">

plz use single quotes around <%=cPk%> in the jsp as shown below and try running the application:

<input TYPE="hidden" name="cPk" value='<%=cPk%>'>
