Sending More than One Value for an Associated Name

Sending More than One Value for an Associated Name

Have you ever wanted to send more than one value for an associated name by passing values to a Servlet or JSP using a name-value pair? A simple way to do this is to pass a string array for an associated name.

Here is the HTML code that does this (it can be done in the same way using JSP):


On submitting the form to a Servlet or JSP the name “test” will contain more then one values (in this case 5 values).

In the Servlet or JSP, the following piece of code will get the all the values associated with the name:

  String test []=request.getParameterValues (“test”);

“test” has a string array or returns null if the values are not received from the request.
