At this stage I believe with one or two unwary steps we could head down the road of religious I'll tread carefully.
I will say, however, that when I separate model from view from controller, one of my own personal motivations is to have the code workspace that the view designer plays/works in be uncluttered by model and view code.  As a result, I would never put any model code into a template or psp file.  If you find yourself writing sql or database access code in a psp file thats a pretty good sign you've wandered off the path a bit.  Its possible I misunderstood what you're saying, so take my words with a grain of salt.
And, as with all religions, you have to decide what you believe in and what fits your circumstance best.

Subject: Re: [Webware-discuss] forwarding req.values ?

hi all
tim thank you for you clear response and also thank you all for your time and examples
im still thinking that psp is the best and easy way to have the job done on a MVC scenario
all modeling/controller and db connections files  are going to be built inside psp files  <% %>  that shoud be included on view psp files, rendering all html (produced by a wysyswyg page builder including all needed    <%=rercords/vars %>)
psp compiler takes care of all PY code an generate the classes automatically for me
including all webkit page and the related servlets
to handle vars thru out the servlets i will use post/get and mostly session
if anybody thinks that im wrong in anyway i would like to have an input to clarify myself once more
by the way i also would like to know if there is a place to upload my snippets or download of someone else  and have the way to run them as a WEBWARESTORE of online running examples to discuss and or learn at the same time
best regards

No.  req.setField only affects other consumers of this request in
Webware.  When you use forward(), the same request object will be
inherited by the new script, so it will see them.  In the case you have
there, you are writing HTML back to the web browser, at which point this
request object will be deleted.  The response from the client's browser
represents a brand-new request, and will only contain those variables
that you wrote in the HTML form.
