1. you are adding it to a div, not to the form
2. you could use createElement and appendChild instead:


<head>
<script>
var arrInput = new Array(0);
var arrInputValue = new Array(0);
 
function addInput() {
  arrInput.push(arrInput.length);
  arrInputValue.push("");
  display();
}
 
function display() {
  document.getElementById('parah').innerHTML="";
  for (intI=0;intI<arrInput.length;intI++) {
    document.getElementById('parah').appendChild(createInput(arrInput[intI], arrInputValue[intI]));
  }
}
 
function saveValue(intId,strValue) {
  arrInputValue[intId]=strValue;
}  
 
function createInput(id,value) {
  var obj = document.createElement('input');
  obj.type='text' 
  obj.name='test' 
  obj.id='test'+ id 
  obj.onchange=function () { saveValue(this.id,this.value) } 
  return obj
}
 
function deleteInput() {
  if (arrInput.length > 0) { 
     arrInput.pop(); 
     arrInputValue.pop();
  }
  display(); 
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<form method="post" action="test.jsp" onSubmit="alert(this.elements[0].name); return false">
<div id="parah"></div>
 
<input type="button" value="add item" onclick="addInput();" />
<input type="submit" value="submit"/>
</form>
</body>

Here is a debugged version
<head>
<script>
var arrInput = new Array(0);
var arrInputValue = new Array(0);
 
function addInput() {
  arrInput.push(arrInput.length);
  arrInputValue.push("");
  display();
}
 
function display() {
  document.getElementById('parah').innerHTML="";
  for (intI=0;intI<arrInput.length;intI++) {
    document.getElementById('parah').appendChild(createInput(arrInput[intI], arrInputValue[intI]));
  }
}
 
function saveValue(intId,strValue) {
  arrInputValue[intId]=strValue;
  var text = "" 
  for (var o  in arrInputValue) text +='\n'+o+':'+arrInputValue[o]
  alert(text)
}  
 
function createInput(id,value) {
  var obj = document.createElement('input');
  obj.type='text' 
  obj.name='test' 
  obj.id='test'+ id 
  obj.onchange=function () { saveValue(this.id,this.value) } 
  return obj
}
 
function deleteInput() {
  if (arrInput.length > 0) { 
     arrInput.pop(); 
     arrInputValue.pop();
  }
  display(); 
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<form method="post" action="test.jsp" onSubmit="alert(this.elements[0].name); return false">
<div id="parah"></div>
 
<input type="button" value="add item" onclick="addInput();" />
<input type="submit" value="submit"/>
</form>
</body>

nothing changed, how the calling will be in server side?
my application should present more than one text input, each time the click "add item" button,
but when the user click the submit button the values written in each text input must saved in array?

you need to move <div id="parah"></div> into <form></form> area, and use the first aproach you used.


btw this is the doubled question with:
