   // Get all request-scoped attributes
    java.util.Enumeration enum = req.getAttributeNames();
    for (; enum.hasMoreElements(); ) {
        // Get the name of the attribute
        String name = (String)enum.nextElement();
   
        // Get the value of the attribute
        Object value = req.getAttribute(name);
    }

generally, can try like this:

Enumeration enum = session.getAttributeNames();
Object curAttribute = null;
String attName = null;
while (enum.hasMoreElements())
{
    attName = (String)enum.nextElement();
    curAttribute = session.getAttribute(attName);
    out.println("Attribute name: " + attName);
    out.println("Type: " + curAttribute.getClass());
    out.println("<BR>");
}

ahhh, post a wrong one.. what i mean is this..

java.util.Enumeration enum = session.getAttributeNames();
     Object curAttribute = null;
     String attName = null;
      Hastable ht=new Hashtable();
     while (enum.hasMoreElements())
     {
          attName = (String)enum.nextElement();
          curAttribute = session.getAttribute(attName);
          ht.put(curAttribute,attName);
    }

( sorry, angelIII )
