Hi Experts,

I am facing a strange problem with getting values from URL.

So in my controller, I have two methods: getExcel and getChart.

getExcel renders a table in excel sheet and getChart renders a flash chart.

Both the methods have identical structure, except for the return statement.

Problem I am facing is with the variable liabilityCode in getExcel method.
String liabilityCode = request.getParameter("liabilityCode");

I am not able to fetch this value out of URL. where as the same liabilityCode is getting fetched perfectly fine in the method below it (getChart). The strange issue is, except for liabilityCode, I am able to fetch all other parameters. your insight on this would be highly helpful

In what way are you detecting it is not working? Just on the final output? Or is an exception being thrown somewhere?

Also, are you aware that in your model.put call you spell it "liablityCode" instead of "liabilityCode" (missing one i), although it is spelled the same in both functions, so perhaps it is intentional.

Actually... I put some System.out statements in both the methods... getChart method prints everything including liability Code... getExcel method prints everything other than liability Code

My next step would be to use getParameterMap() and dump out all the names and values.

It may also be useful to know how you are making the request. Are you pasting in a link to your browser, or it is being generated programatically?

The flow is like this

A.jsp   -->  B.jsp  --> Excel

So B.jsp is getting URL from A.jsp

Is there any chance that when A.jsp follows the excel path, it produces a slightly different request URL?

If possible, I think I'd try manually posting the request to B.jsp (using my browser), so I could verify that the problem is with B.jsp (and not with A.jsp).

>                 model.put("liablityCode", liabilityCode);

its spelt wrong here as SordSord mentioned earlier
so the libilityCode will not be added to the model, and thus won't be included in the link to /excel.html
