I have the following in web.xml.
<param-name> TheParam </param-name>
<param-value> ParamValue </param-value>
<description>The quick brown fox.</description>
using the following I am able to get all <param-name> and all <param-value> displayed in a JSP form.
<TABLE border cellspacing=0 cellpadding=5>
<th colspan=3 align=center>context.getInitParameter</th>
<th>Parameter Name</th>
for (Enumeration enu = application.getInitParameterNames();
enu.hasMoreElements() {
String x = (String)enu.nextElement();
temp = application.getInitParameter(x);
<td><%=x %></td>
<td><input text value= <%=temp %> ></td>
I need to be able to display <description> also. How do I do it?

The description is not a parameter. If you want to display it, put it in as a parameter.

As posted by Sri, do this
<param-name> TheParam </param-name>
<param-value> ParamValue </param-value>
<param-name> description </param-name>
<param-value> The quick brown fox</param-value>
