I am trying to pass the variable 'address' from a database to a hidden field for use in a JSP page. I cannot get this to work. and the value always turns up null. Some of what I am doing is shown below. How do I get address into the hidden value field as shown below? Can someone help?
...
ResultSet schoolRs = stmt.executeQuery("SELECT STU_NAME, STU_ADDRESS, GRADE_LEVEL WHERE...

String name;
String address;
String level;
       
      while(schoolRs.next() )
            {
            name = toolNameRs.getString("STU_NAME");
                address = toolNameRs.getString("STU_ADDRESS");
                level = toolNameRs.getString("GRADE_LEVEL");
     
                out.println(...do something...
}
     
%>
This is where I am having problems...
<input type="hidden" name="hidden" Value=' " + address + " '>
<%
          conn.close();
%>

Is that in the JSP or are you generating that from a Servlet? If in a JSP, then it has to be:

<input type="hidden" name="hidden" Value="<%= address %>">

mayankeagle's solution is right, but you shouldn't have a space character after <%=, the JSP compiler may fail to recognize the instruction:

<input type="hidden" name="hidden" Value="<%=address %>">
