using javsacript, you can get all the values in select box which are unselected in a hidden field.
Then you can send those values (comma separated) to servlet after submitting them

try this code
<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript">
function unselectedOptions()
{
  var options = document.getElementById("mySelect").options;   
  var unSelectedVals = new Array();
  for ( var counter =0; counter < options.length; counter++ )
  {
     if ( !options[ counter ].checked )
     {
         unSelectedVals[ unSelectedVals.length ] = options[ counter ].value;
     }
  }
  alert(unSelectedVals.join(","));
}
</script>
</head>
<body>

<form>
<select id="mySelect" size="4" multiple>
	<option>Apple</option>
	<option>Pear</option>
	<option>Banana</option>
	<option>Orange</option>
</select>
<a href="javascript:unselectedOptions()">Show all Unselected options</a>
</form>
</body>
</html>

elSel.options[k].selected itself returns boolean.
so checking it for false will return all the not selected values.

you can check as
if (elSel.options[k].selected==false)

try this
<script type="text/javascript">

var myselect=document.getElementById("sample")
for (var i=0; i<myselect.options.length; i++){
 if (myselect.options[i].selected==false){

  alert(i + "is not selected");
 }
}
</script>

Sorry, i need to use the 'selected' method, not the 'checked'

replace that method with
function unselectedOptions()
{
  var options = document.getElementById("mySelect").options;  
  var unSelectedVals = new Array();
  for ( var counter =0; counter < options.length; counter++ )
  {
     if ( !options[ counter ].selected )
     {
         unSelectedVals[ unSelectedVals.length ] = options[ counter ].value;
     }
  }
  alert(unSelectedVals.join(","));
}

This should work

function removeCountrySelected() {
  var elSel = document.getElementById("learnCountry1");
  var unSelectedVals = [];
  for (var i = elSel.length - 1; i>=0; i--) {
    if (elSel.options[i].selected) elSel.options[i].remove();
    else unSelectedVals[unSelectedVals.length] = elSel.options[i].value;
  }
  document.frm.learnCountry.value=(unSelectedVals.length >0)unSelectedVals.join(","):"";
}

@sitijaafar: line 14-17 was not required, since once you have removed it from select box, it wont be accessible again,

Also remove line 21 now, since learnCountry select box now has only unselected value
