I was reading about getting url parameters using jstl.

I wrote followin code


Process.jsp code


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

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<html>
  <head>
    <base href="<%=basePath%>">
   
    <title>My JSP 'Process.jsp' starting page</title>
   
      <meta http-equiv="pragma" content="no-cache">
      <meta http-equiv="cache-control" content="no-cache">
      <meta http-equiv="expires" content="0">    
      <meta http-equiv="keywords" content="keyword1,keyword2,keyword3">
      <meta http-equiv="description" content="This is my page">
      <!--
      <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="styles.css">
      -->

  </head>
 
  <body>
    This is my JSP page. <br>
    <jsp:useBean id="user" class="org.gp.gpr.dto.User" scope="request">
    <jsp:setProperty property="userName" name="user" param="userName"/>
   
    </jsp:useBean>
   
   
 helloo<jsp:getProperty property="userName" name="user"/>
  </body>
</html>


Login.jsp code


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

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<html>
  <head>
    <base href="<%=basePath%>">
   
    <title>Login page</title>
   
      <meta http-equiv="pragma" content="no-cache">
      <meta http-equiv="cache-control" content="no-cache">
      <meta http-equiv="expires" content="0">    
      <meta http-equiv="keywords" content="keyword1,keyword2,keyword3">
      <meta http-equiv="description" content="This is my page">
      <!--
      <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="styles.css">
      -->

  </head>
 
  <body>

 <form method="post" action="Process.jsp">
 <br>User Id:<input type="text" name="userId">
 <br>User Name:<input type="text" name="userName">
 <br>User Addr1:<input type="text" name="userAddr1">
 <br>UserAddr2:<input type="text" name="userAddr2">
 <br>City:<input type="text" name="city">
 <br>State:<input type="text" name="state">
 <br>Pincode:<input type="text" name="pin">
<br> <input type="submit">
 </form>
  </body>
</html>







I read

writing below

 <jsp:useBean id="user" class="org.gp.gpr.dto.User" scope="request">
    <jsp:setProperty property="userName" name="user" param="userName"/>
   
    </jsp:useBean>


is equivalent to writing as below (if the string member variables names  of text fields and user dto member variables are same)


 <jsp:useBean id="user" class="org.gp.gpr.dto.User" scope="request">
    <jsp:setProperty property="userName" name="user"/>
   
    </jsp:useBean>


I have not understood how that shortcut works. please advise

This is a feature that is called introspection. You match the parameter of your form with the parameter of your object if they have the same name.

Here is a very old (but still perfect) link that explains introspection: http://www.javaworld.com/jw-03-2000/jw-0331-ssj-forms.html (go to page 3 to go straight to introspective magic).

I am not sure. I guess you will need to define an array, like you do with normal JSP parameters.
