If I needed to pass an additional parameter on this, how would I go about doing it:

public void doAction( Context ctx, BcSQLAgent agt, HttpServletRequest req, HttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException, IOException, Exception
  {
    SimpleDateFormat dateFormatLong = new SimpleDateFormat("MMMM dd, yyyy");

    String caseId = req.getParameter ("caseId");
    String homeId = req.getParameter ("homeId");
    String fileName = req.getParameter ("documentFileName");
    String dmDocumentId = req.getParameter ("dmDocumentId");
    String fileExt = fileName.substring( fileName.lastIndexOf(".") );
    String savedFileName = new String();
    String savedFileNameOriginal = new String();
    String savedFileNameNoSpaces = new String();
    String savedFileNameNoSpacesOriginal = new String();
    String templateFile = "fhfiles/templates/" + fileName;
    String tempString = new String();
    String generalDocumentType = req.getParameter ("generalDocumentType");

    WordTemplate oWW = null;

    String serverName = req.getServerName();
    Home h = ctx.getHome( agt );
    BcInteger _homeid = new BcInteger(ctx.getHomeId());

    Case c = new Case (agt);
    Package pack = new Package( agt );
    Properties _tagsByName = new Properties();
    TagHandler _tagHandler = new TagHandler( ctx, agt );

Thanks, Midani Tickabooma

what kind of additional parameter do you need?
Thsi method (usually actully those are rather methods doGet()  or doPost())
is called by container, so you cannot modify the parameter list
I think you in theory  can have a setXXX() method in servlet, but why would you need it - you normally don't need it.
Explauin what it is you want to accomplish

All parameters are normally coming from the form which user fills in and are passed through the Request object as you see in your own code

The servlet controls the action for instance:

https://209.173.134.79:7001/DMTemplateLoaderFLReports?sdate=03/16/2010&edate=03/19/2012&caseid=0&homeid=1&parentid=1&userid=100059&mode=APA&documentFileName=1-EmbalmingReport.doc&homeId=<xsl:value-of select="../../Home/Id"/>&amp;transId=NA&amp;dmDocumentId=<xsl:value-of select="../../DMDocumentId"/>


and this is the code. I need to make sure that the parentid parameter is getting passed. See attached script.

String dmparentid= req.getParameter ("parentid");

the same way you do it with caseid and homeid

>That's all?
if you are passing this way caseid and homeid why not to pass the same way parentid?
Thsi is normal way how parameters get into the servlet

I would rather normally use doGet() method in such aceses but idf it works this way then fine



>Just double-checking everything.
