1. The lines below are described in the Controller class.

HttpServletRequest request = ServletActionContext.getRequest();

request.setAttribute("persons", persons);

2. The line below is described in the corresponding vm file.

But it does not work.

Hi Akira,

you are using webwork module.? or Servlet module?


tousif shaikh.

I am using webwork module.

webwork does not return Objects as we return the string based on the string params we are transfering request to the velocity. now from .class your trying to set and getattribute for object.

i can suggest you if its possible you can try servlet module.

or you can put the required data to the session object using setSession() you can use the required object values all over context in velocity and then clear the session this way you could achive.

please try and let me know.

Actully, the implicit object for request is $req but not $request, you can try $req.getAttribute("attribute").
