How to call a method from servlet from JSP

Hi All,

This will be my first every JSP page.

All i have right now is this:

<%@page contentType="text/html"%>
<%@page pageEncoding="UTF-8"%>

The JSP page should get a QueryString parameter called message and send it to my servlet message.
http://myJavaWeb/sendMessage.jps?message=HelloWorld

How would a JSP page look like that does this.

The package of my servlet is
package Diversity.Java.Web.Servlet.PersistentHTTPconnection;

THe class defenition of the servlet is:
public class PersistentHTTPconnectiontHandler extends HttpServlet

You can define in your web.xml the servlet mapping as the following:

 <servlet>
        <servlet-name>PersistentHTTPconnectiontHandler</servlet-name>
        <display-name>PersistentHTTPconnectiontHandler</display-name>
        <servlet-class>Diversity.Java.Web.Servlet.PersistentHTTPconnection.PersistentHTTPconnectiontHandler</servlet-class>
  </servlet>
<servlet-mapping>
        <servlet-name>PersistentHTTPconnectiontHandler</servlet-name>
        <url-pattern>/sendMessage.jps</url-pattern>
  </servlet-mapping>

This way you can call your servlet class when the url pattern matches the "/sendMessage.jps".

but i want to call the servlet from my JSP and not have the webserver route in incomming request and response object to the servlet.

The method I want to call is:
public static void sendMessageToAlll(String message)

so how from the JSP do i call that method which is in a servlet

Peter KwanCommented:
Can you call using a scriptlet?

for example,
<%
String message = request.getParameter("message");
PersistentHTTPconnectiontHandler.sendMessageToAlll(message);
%>

when compiling sendMessage.jsp containing this code:
<%@page contentType="text/html"%>
<%@page pageEncoding="UTF-8"%>
<%
String message = request.getParameter("message");
Diversity.Java.Web.Servlet.PersistentHTTPconnectiontHandler.sendMessageToAlll(message);
%>

I get the following error:
C:\Documents and Settings\root\PersitentHTTP\build\generated\src\org\apache\jsp\sendMessage_jsp.java:46: package Diversity.Java.Web.Servlet does not exist

The packagage containing the servlet is located in the source package folder of the current project in netbeans 5.0. The sendMessage.jsp is located in the Web Pages folder of the current project in netbeans 5.0

Please check your classpath in "Library Manager".

What should the class path look like?

The werid thing is when I begin typing Diversity in my jsp page. It finds it in the dropdown and I can navigate all the way to persistantHTTPhandler.
But once there It does NOT find the public static sendMessageToAll

make sure you have imported " PersistentHTTPconnectiontHandler"  and make sure Diversity.Java.Web.Servlet.PersistentHTTPconnectiontHandler is the right path in your jsp.

I now have this but it still is not compiling.

<%@ page import="Diversity.Java.Web.Servlet.PersistentHTTPconnection"   %>
<%
String message = request.getParameter("message");
Diversity.Java.Web.Servlet.PersistentHTTPconnection.PersistentHTTPconnectiontHandler.sendMessageToAlll(message);
%>

compile:
