<%
String path = request.getContextPath();
String basePath = request.getScheme()+"://"+request.getServerName()+":"+request.getServerPort()+path+"/";
%>

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

DTO class

package org.gp.gpr.dto;

public class User {
      private String userName;
      private String userId;
      public String getUserName() {
            return userName;
      }
      public void setUserName(String userName) {
            this.userName = userName;
      }
      public String getUserId() {
            return userId;
      }
      public void setUserId(String userId) {
            this.userId = userId;
      }

}




I could not understand where is the model object. How it come into effect. How the application interact with model.  Please advise. Any ideas, sample code, resources highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I re factored the code further to use requestdipatcher to maintain same request and also to make change in the server side without url showing success.jsp.

[
success.jsp code

<%@ page language="java" import="java.util.*" pageEncoding="ISO-8859-1" import="org.gp.gpr.dto.User"%>
<%
String path = request.getContextPath();
String basePath = request.getScheme()+"://"+request.getServerName()+":"+request.getServerPort()+path+"/";
%>

<h3>login success</h3>

>>>>>> public User getUserDetails(String userID){
            User user=new User();
            user.setUserName(users.get(userID));
            user.setUserId(userID);
            return user;
           
      }



this is the part ur model is used .

Model is nothing but your bean class that is used to join ur back end(controller) and front end (jsp)

for flow purpose i mention back end (sorry its give you wrong meaning ) .

Front end  is Jsp (View)

your java code is (controller)

your Bean class are (Model)

Model is used for getting values from ur Jsp / controller  to give controller /jsp .

I think its clear now
