I have one JSP page with a hyperlink. The URL for this link is like this:

http://localhost:7001/ple/SomeAction.do?action=something&appId=1234

When the link is clicked, some Struts action class will be called, and two parameters, action and appId, will be passed in. Everything works perfectly fine for us.

Now, this is an HTTP GET. Due to security concern, how do I convert it to an HTTP POST so that the user is not able to see the parmater list on his browser's status bar when his mouse is hovering over the hyperlink?

I'm guessing that the easiest way is to call a JavaScript method when the link is called, and that method will set the parameter values, and then perform a submit.

Also, the backend action class would need to check that only HTTP POST submission is acceptable.

Thankis in advance.
