Hello,

I want to loop all local and global variables that are declared in a jsp.
How can i acces all these variables and print out their 'String' value ?

e.g
String var1 = "value1";
String var2 ="value2";
int var3 = 15;
int var4 = 16

output :
----------------------
var1   15
var2   value2
...
------------------

you can't get the local( inside method ) variables but can do class/instance/member variables using reflection.

If you are trying to debug a jsp, in that case you should put the sysouts in spots where you want to see the variable values, otherwise like ksivananth says you will not be able to access the local variables, only  instance member will be visible - which  you can view via the toString() method if you have overridden that.

You shouldn't have any Java code inside a JSP, so there should be nothing to "loop".

There's no way to "loop all variables" in Java anyway.
Or rather there is but it requires a lot of very tricky code and won't do what you want it to (nothing will).

if you could tell us the reason why you are trying to iterate the local and global variables , we could suggest any alternatives.
