request object populate.

Hi Folks.
I have a multipart form JSP template for file upload which also has couple of hidden input fields. This template posts to a second JSP template to perform the transaction. I generate some vaules in the second template that now need to be assigned to the submitted hidden field from the first template. I then pass the request object to a third party method that does the upload plus extra stuff.
My question: is there anyway I can update the hidden fields passed from the first template. The third party API reqires that the hidden field be populated.
I would appreciate your help. Thanks in advance.

There does not seem to be any way to modify/add to the request parameters in the servlet API. You might be able to use an extension of the HttpServletRequestWrapper class to wrap the initial request and send a modified version onward.
I agree. Here's the link:
