JSP and Radio Buttons

I have a JSP with a select box,radio buttons, and a submit button. The user will make a select from the select box and click on one of the radio button. When the submit button is clicked on the JSP redirects to another JSP that needs to determine the value from the select box (which works) and determine which radio button is checked. The 2nd JSP saves the value from the select box using request.getParameter(select box name). However, I can't determine which radio button is "on". How should I do this?

Hi Marylou Thompson,
Give your radio buttons a different name but put them in the same group. e.g
<input type="radio" name="RB" value="rb1">
<input type="radio" name="RB" value="rb2">
<input type="radio" name="RB" value="rb3">
<input type="radio" name="RB" value="rb4">
