It looks to me like your JSP is missing a couple lines of code
String name=request.getParameter("fname");
response.setContentType("text/html");
PrintWriter out = response.getWriter();
out.println("Name :"+name);
------------------
Dont blindly believe everything I say.

Randall do we really need to get the "out" object explicitly in a jsp . I thought it is an implicit object. Correct me if i'm wrong
Thanks
