I have three text boxes followed by a send button in my .swf file. On click of send button call is made to the request url mentinoed in my xml file.
The text boxes names "senderName","emailFriend1","emailFriend2".
The flash code call in my jsp is:

<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0" width="720" height="920" id="celebrate6" align="middle">
<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
<param name="movie" value="celebrate6.swf" />
<param name="loop" value="false" />
<param name="menu" value="false" />
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" />
<embed src="celebrate6.swf" loop="false" menu="false" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff" width="720" height="920" ID="celebrate6" name="celebrate6" align="middle" allowscriptaccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />

I need to get these text box values in my java code.
I have tried to access using request.getAttribute("senderName"),       request.getParameter("senderName") but either of them returns null.

I am in desperate need of some help as to how do I get these values in my code.

Thanks in advance,

the simplist way is to create a function in Java called XYZ(a,b,c) and call it in Flash useing Call XYZ(A,B,C), this way flash will call the function in java and return the parimeters.
