Are you trying to populate the javascript array with your JSP array ?
<% 
   String[] str = {"1111","2222","3333"};
%>
<html>
<head>
<script>
function validate()
  {
    var array1 = new Array();
<%
  for(int i = 0; i < str.length; i++)
   {
    out.println("array1[" + i + "]=\"" + str[i] + "\";");
   }
%>
  alert(array1);
}
</script>
</head>
<body onload="validate()">
testing
</body>
</html>

I think what I posted will work for you. Just change from my test array to your parameter values. See below.
<% 
   String[] str = request.getParameterValues("str");
%>
<html>
<head>
<script>
function validate()
  {
    var array1 = new Array();
<%
  for(int i = 0; i < str.length; i++)
   {
    out.println("array1[" + i + "]=\"" + str[i] + "\";");
   }
%>
  alert(array1);
}
</script>
</head>
<body onload="validate()">
testing
</body>
</html>

Sounds like a encoding problem. Please show us the array elements and your code. Also show us  the source code sent to the browser.

the array when i pass it, the url :
str=[Ljava.lang.String;@1643b92

-----------------------------------
the first jsp page :
String[] str={"notebook","note","ink"};
response.sendRedirect("keyword.jsp?str="+str);
-----------------------
keyword.jsp:
String[] str = request.getParameterValues("str");
and the java script function.
-------------------------------
thank you

>str=[Ljava.lang.String;@1643b92  
That is the hashcode for the array object.  
Please try using
String[] str={"notebook","note","ink"};
response.sendRedirect("keyword.jsp?str="+ str[0] + "&str=" + str[1] + "&str=" + str[2]);

If you want only to pass them to the other page, as the full array, you could send them hidden as a session value.

response.getSession(false).setAttribute("myarray", str);

or then, you can build your url in java, and the put it on the page, easier than writing the code step by step...

StringBuffer buffer = new StringBuffer("keyword.jsp?");
for (String tmp: str) {
  buffer.append("str=");
  buffer.append(tmp);
}
response.sendRedirect(buffer.toString());

Yes.  
But newalopez has a good idea. It would be easier to use a session-scoped object. That way you don't have to send it to the browser and then back to the server  

>response.getSession(false).setAttribute("myarray", str);  
Don't use this.  
Use the following:
-----------------------------------
the first jsp page :
String[] str={"notebook","note","ink"};
session.setAttribute("str", str);
String encodedURL = response.encodeRedirectURL("keyword.jsp");
response.sendRedirect(encodedURL);
-----------------------
keyword.jsp:
String[] str =(String[]) request.getAttribute("str");
and the java script function.
-------------------------------

If you don't really need to redirect, you could just use a forward.
