This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I don't think parent.location submits the form. What you need to do here is have all the 3 buttons as type SUBMIT with same name and different values and inside your servlet get the value see which button is pressed. Take a look at the follwoing example.
Alternate way to have a cancel button, as Randell mentioned earlier, have them as type cancel so as to avoid further checking at the server side. Let me know if this helps Ajan
