    as for the jsp part, I will be learning that in a couple of weeks when I get some projects done. To call a servlet from html frame, you just call the class file.

    <FRAME SRC="/servlets/My_Servlet" NAME="body" NORESIZE
    frameborder="YES" scrolling="YES" bordercolor="#999999">

    Usually this is all inside frameset tags or whatever.
    I hope this is what you were asking...

    Thumbs up add it into request object...

    hi there,

    you can add your objects into the HttpServletRequest object
    and then redirect from your servlet to the jsp page.

    e.g. from "", passing a String object to the "a.jsp" file.

    In "":
    ...doGet(HttpServletRequeet req, HttpServletResponse res)
    // the jsp file i wanna redirect to
    String target = "a.jsp";

    // creating a String object
    String hello = "Hello people!";

    // add it into the HttpServletRequest object
    req.setAttribute("hello", hello);

    // create a dispatch from the ServletContext object
    // to do the redirection for me =)
    // don't forget to specify where you wanna go.
    RequestDispatcher rd = getServletContext().getRequestDispatcher(target);

    // now here is the magic... you are passing the
    // HttpServletRequest obj and HttpServletResponse obj
    // to the jsp page
    rd.forward(req, res);

    // code here will not be execute since you have
    // pass the control to "a.jsp"

    In the "a.jsp" page, you can retrieve the "hello" object
    by doing this:
    String hello = (String)request.getAttribute("hello");

    It's very helpful by doing this because you can hide
    all the business logic inside the Servlet and the JSP
    file will just be doing printing...

    hope it help.
    -hoi =)
