I have jsp page which includes 2 jsps. The problem that though the jsp:iclude is able to see the session values the second one is not able to see it.
Here is a jsp code snippet for the jsp:
<%@ page import="java.util.*,testing.beans.ProductBean,testing.beans.CartItem;" %>
<td colspan=2 align=center>
Hi <%= (String)session.getValue("customerName")%>!
Select any of our products and add them to your cart.
<tr height=90% >
<td width=50% colspan=1 valign=center>
<td colspan=1 width=50% valign=top>
<jsp:include page ="/jsp/ItemsPurchased.jsp" />
Here for first jsp:include i have products in the session and i am able to see them. But in the jsp:include which tries to look up items purschased is not able to see the list of items put in the session.
Interestingly if i include using the include directive the session has values. Also works with pageConext.include().
When i do session.getValue() in the second jsp:include it gets the non null list but the list is empty with 0 objects in it. So it is not that session is died completetly. Also i checked my code thoroughly i am not removing or clearing the list.
My question is when the same jsp page would work for an include directive why not for a jsp:include.
If anyone has gone through the same situation or have a clear picture of what is going on here please explain me. Thanks in advance.
