How do I get message passed from server side to velocity template file?

Following the tutorial of "xproduct-admin-ui-plugin", I need to pass a value from doGet() method of AdminServlet to admin.vm.

Code in

public void doGet(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) throws IOException, ServletException
String username = userManager.getRemoteUsername(request);
if (username == null || !userManager.isSystemAdmin(username))
redirectToLogin(request, response);
request.setAttribute("success", "success");
renderer.render("admin.vm", response.getWriter());


How do I display the message pushed in the variable "success" in admin.vm?

The purpose of creating "xproduct-admin-ui-plugin" ( is to create a configuration for my macro. Does creating an action solve the same purpose? And my aim is to just display a success message after successful saving of the configuration.
