See more: Java HTML JSP Servlet
In my Login.jsp page has
<p><%=request.getAttribute("loginMsg") %></p>
line..It is for display a message.But before it displays ,it displays 'null'.How can i display message without display 'null' before that?

here my code in servlet which call a message to jsp.

private void loginDetail(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException, IOException{
		User u = new User();
		UserService us =new UserServiceImpl() ;
		String Uname = request.getParameter("txtUname");		
		String Pwrd = request.getParameter("txtPwrd");	
		try {
				String message = "Thank you, " + Uname +"..You are now logged into the system";			    
				request.setAttribute("message", message);
				RequestDispatcher rd = getServletContext().getRequestDispatcher("/menu.jsp");
				rd.forward(request, response); 
				HttpSession session = request.getSession(true);
			    session.setAttribute("loggedUser", u);
			    String reqUrl = (String)session.getAttribute("requestedURL");
			}else {
				String message = "You have to register first or check Your user name password again!";				
				request.setAttribute("loginMsg", message);
				RequestDispatcher rd = getServletContext().getRequestDispatcher("/login2.jsp");
				rd.forward(request, response); 
		} catch (Exception e) {
			// TODO Auto-generated catch block			

Please tell me where i go wrong and how to fix it?

Use if else statements in jsp to avoid displaying null values

<![CDATA[<% if(request.getAttribute("loginMsg") != null)
out.println("display wat u need");
out.println("alert msg for null values");

message srings are in servlets.I want to do those messages show in jsp. in here out.println(""); these lines should not empty right? this line "<p><%=request.getAttribute("loginMsg") %></p>" is public for every servlet message.
