Editable Table

I need to make a jsp page with an editable table. I already have layed it out... It is populated from a database. It uses checkboxes for row selection. My question is how do I get the selected values back to the controller when the form is submitted? Let me elaborate... I have no problem getting one row back.. but I don't know how to get more than one row back. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks.

If each row has a checkbox with the same name, and each checkbox has a unique value, what's the issue?

Just get the parameter values for the checkbox and you'll know which rows have been checked.
