Just get the field values from the request and append them to a file:

out.println(req.getParameter("a")); //etc

PrintWriter out = new PrintWriter(new FileWriter("formvals.properties"));
for (Enumeration e = req.getParameterNames(); e.hasMoreElements();) {
	String name = (String)e.nextElement();
	out.println(name + "=" + req.getParameter(name));
}
out.close();

Open in new window
