Subject Re: Accessing static variables
Date Wed, 02 Jul 2003 07:05:53 GMT

I'd just like to agree that this is quite annoying. If I have any static 
variables that I need to access from JSP pages, I set them as application 
scope variables in a load on startup servlet. Annoying, but it's not a bad 
work around.
