i have a form that need to choose which servlet the action on form should do.

for example, if i click button1, the form action is button1servlet
if button2, the form action is button2servlet.
how to do this using jsp.
furthermore, along with choosing the right form for the right button, i need
to pass a parameter. i am thinking about using
<form action=button1servlet?ID = 5> and get it using request.getParameter("ID") from the button1servlet. can it be done?

Thank you for your answer.

One way would be to set the form's action attribute when one of the buttons is pressed.

And yes, you can pass parameters in the action attribute.
I agree. Here's the link:
