This section gives you the best illustration about the setAttribute() method of the request object in JSP. This method sets the value of the attribute for the request which is retrieved later either in the current JSP page or the another JSP page by passing the request object through the dispatcher method. The set value of the attribute is retrieved by the getAttribute(String) method of the request object.

	String strViewPage="SetAttributeMethod1.jsp";
	RequestDispatcher dispatcher = request.getRequestDispatcher(strViewPage);
	if (dispatcher != null){
		dispatcher.forward(request, response);
	} 
%>
