Hi all,

Im trying to call a piece of jsp code from within a javascript function like so:

function reset()
{
alert("change made");
<%
session.removeAttribute("value");
%>
}

<html:select property="process" onchange="reset()">

The alert gets called when its supposed to, in that every time I make a change the alert gets displayed. But everytime the user visits the page the line:
session.removeAttribute("value");
gets called when it should be just called when the function reset in invoked.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

You cannot do that, since the scriptlet are evaluated on serverside before the page is presented to the client side.

One way is to submit a form to the server side and process your statement and then return back to the input page.

>>process your statement and then return back to the input page

Do you mean use javascript to re-direct to a jsp page and then do the processing on that page?

You are not using any servlet ? just submit the form to that servlet or jsp (if you are using jsp) ,remove whatever value you want to remove from session , come back to same page..with values.
