retrive values for dynamic text input

hi,
the following code works as following: when user click"add item" button a text input will show and user write values for example"para1" the user can click "add item" for second time and another text input will show and user will write 2nd values in the 2nd text input for example "para2"..and so on
when user done from his parameter entries he will click "submit" button to send the values to the server

you will find in the code the both side (clien and server)
The problem is that the server can save the last parameter (last text input entries) for example (para2) ONLY , I want him to retrive all text inputs , he can retrive just the last one
What is the solution??

--Client side (test.jsp)----
<%@page contentType="text/html"%>
<%@page pageEncoding="UTF-8"%>
<%@ page import="java.sql.*,java.io.*,java.util.*,java.lang.*"%>
<%--
The taglib directive below imports the JSTL library. If you uncomment it,
you must also add the JSTL library to the project. The Add Library... action
on Libraries node in Projects view can be used to add the JSTL 1.1 library.

  //String x=str[1];
    out.println(str[i]);

You are not saving the values into the newly created objects. Update function createInput(id,value) to the following:

function createInput(id,value) {
  var obj = document.createElement('input');
  obj.value=value;
  obj.type='text'
  obj.name='test'
  obj.id='test'+ id
  obj.onchange=function () { saveValue(this.id,this.value) }
  return obj
}

Or from your function create input change the line

obj.id='test'+ id
 to

obj.id='test'


then your  getParamtervlues will provide you a array of all inputs.
The drawback of this approach is that you can not gaurntee the order in which you will recieve these inputs.
