How do you pass more than one parameter in a href.

I need the first parameter to get cast in to an int and the second to a string when my servlet recieves them but im getting a number format exception so its as if its seeing the whole lot as one parameter?

What does it look like in your request?


jsp code
      int iParam = Integer.parseInt(request.getParameter("param1"));
      String strParam = request.getParameter("param2");

or do you have params of the same name?
