Here is an example from my forthcoming book on servlets and JSP
<form action="TableDemoC.jsp" method="GET">
Enter Number to be shifted: <input name="numb" type="text" size="10">
<input type="hidden" name="studentid" value="thx1138" >
<input type="submit" value="Show" name="go" ><br>
As you see, the action just points to the JSP page which lives in a directory with HTML pages, etc. - as opposed to sending to a servlet where you have to use the servlet alias.

It works fine, you just need to fix your typing error:
change "getParmater" to "getParameter"
