Experts,
  I have a table display that when the user clicked on a row a jsp function is called with the selected table row id.  I would like to pass the selected rowid to my java class (bean) so that it can do some processing with the selected row (i.e. delete the row from the database).  I am having trouble setting the values in my java bean from the jsp page; though, I have no trouble getting values from the bean to my jsp.  Please help!

...
<jsp:useBean id="mybean" scope="request"
             class="test" />
..
..
function rowSelected(num)
{
alert("selected row:"+num); //popup window shows the correct selected row number
  <%
  mybean.setRowSelected(999); //these two lines produced the expected results
  System.err.println("Row ID:"+mybean.getRowSelected());
 
  mybean.setRowSelected(num); //but with this...jboss throws exception about not knowing what num is?
%>
}

First of all, you should put your bean in a package.  After doing that use it in your bean tag.
<jsp:useBean id="mybean" scope="request" class="your.package.test" />  

>mybean.setRowSelected(num); //but with this...jboss throws exception about not knowing what num is?
num , I think is a javascript variable and is in the browser at the client.  After the user selects a row, to get num to the server you must either make a request with a url with num as a parameter, or submit a form, or make a AJAX call.

You're confirming that what I was trying to do is not feasible.  I am now using  hidden fields to pass along the values - and it works just fine.  Thanks for the help.
