Drop down

Okay I want to create a drop down list that is on a form and then when the user submits it the value gets sent to the page that updates the database. Here is what I have for the code so far. I reloaded my page but none of the values show up in the drop down. On the next page to retrieve the values do I just use a request.getParameter to get the value?

out.println("<select name='division'>");
          out.println("<option value='Senior'>");
          out.println("<option value='Midget'>");
          out.println("<option value='Bantam'>");

If it is a single value than:

String division = request.getParameter("division");

If you want to get a multiple values than:

String[] division = request.getParameterValues("division");

correct me if i am wrong.
