I have tried to use the href to open a servlet from a JSP. I could not get the servlet to recognize the form attributes. Is the only way to get them to be read is use the submit button for the form?

hi Steve,

Your servlet can also add parameters and their values to the url:

Your servlet then can read the parameter: request.getParameter("parameter1")
