Request parameters are part of the URL in a GET, hence remembered. With a POST, the parameters are in the request body.

I am still not very clear. I read the following in a tutorial

JSF doesnt support GET and hence the result pages cannot be bookmarked


What does Result Pages mean? What are the pages got from a POST called?

It means the page that is displayed in the browser as a result of that request being made.

I'm going to move this to our JSF forum where someone, more knowledgeable in JSF can elaborate on how it supports get (or, if it doesn't, why not).

What is this jsf forum you speak about? Can we have a look at it, or is it only for jsf developers?

You just posted in it, so I'd say that you found it.

(Ben moved the post from the Servlets forum to here.)
