Using c:param doesn't work in portlets
<jsp:param name="jeffstest" value="26"/>
<c:param name="jeffstest" value="26"/>
to work inside of a portlet. The page includes okay, but the param is not passed to the request parameters successfully. The odd thing is that the param does get into the querystring!
So for now, my workaround is to do:
<c:set var="jeffstest" value="26" scope="request"/>
I'd rather use the c:param tag, but for whatever reason it has problems inside a portlet. I'm using Jetspeed 1.6 Fusion (JSR-168 enabled), in case anyone is wondering.
