Hey experts,

 I am trying the data source of a single component in a huge project that includes java, jsp & xml files. The data that I want was retrieved in an include jsp file in the last line of the following piece of code:

CmpXmlForm form = new CmpXmlForm();
form.reset(null, request);
form.setFrmXmlData(request.getParameter("frmXmlData"));
HashMap hmQueryResults  = (HashMap)request.getAttribute("cmp.response.data");

In order to find where the data related to the attribute "cmp.response.data" is set, I have to find in the java files something similar to request.setAttribute("cmp.response.data"), but I can't seem to find something like that..any help on where I am mistaken??

Did you search for the string

        "cmp.response.data"

including the quotes?

Yes, it is found in around 100 src files....shouldn't setting be in request.setAttribute, or it can be set using another way??

even it could have been written with blanks:
setAttribute ("cmp.response.data",
or
setAttribute( "cmp.response.data",
or
setAttribute ( "cmp.response.data",

and so on.

Apparently the same idea as Giant ;°)

Commented:
even the object name "hmQueryResults" may be different.

That's why it's better not to include it in the search term

see better before. For this fact I exclude to the search and stop to the comma.

I would even exclude the comma ;°)

to search for both:
    "cmp.response.data",
and
    "cmp.response.data" ,
