Hidden Variables and Hyper Link

Hi All,
I have a question on the hidden variables . I have a simple JSP page

<form name = "XXXX" method = "POST" action "">

< input type = "hidden" name = "a" value = "a"
<td align="right"><a href="/nams/svc/myaccount/save/ealert"><img src="/templates/nams/images/btn_close.gif" width="83" height="22" border="0"></a></td>

</form>

As in the above the action is empty so when i link on the hyper link . will the hidden variable also pass with the request.

Means can i pass the hidden variables by click on the hyper - link and this hyper link point to action defined in the strust-config.xml

Thanks in advance for your prompt answer

Clicking on a hyper link will always use HTTP GET (not POST).

Clicking on the link is redirecting to that URL. If you want your form fields on the server you need to submit the page/form. Other option would be make your hidden fields part of the link's URL.
