Passing values with forms to servlet.

I know how to pass values with a form to a direct JSP example (''). But, I have a servlet that is called ('') that actually runs code in the directory (''). The only way to call is using the servlet, you cannot go to to run it, it must be called using the servlet.

Can you post to the servlet?? or do you need a direct link?

Is there anything special I need to do in my servlet code to recieve it properly? I tried just posting to ''' and it didn't seem to work.

Is there anyway you could just post to a domain? and then anything in that domain can read your POST??

This course will introduce you to C++ 11 and teach you about syntax fundamentals.

Afraid not - if you post to a domain, you will end up posting to the root file of that domain, usually index.jsp or something like that.

In your servlet, use the following to get the arguments posted:

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