Not an EJB question. Please be a bit more careful where you post questions. Someone will move this shortly.

Also, please use meaningful subjects for your posts. "javascript" doesn't tell us anything about the nature of your question. Please read this for more information.

With regards to your question (which actually has very little to do with javascript), hidden elements in a form act just like text elements except that they are not displayed on the page. You would retrieve them in the same way that you would any other form element.
