Duplicate entries in request.getParameter() --- URGENT

Is it possible to retrieve multiple entries of the same name using request.getParameter() ??
For example: xyz.jsp?id=val1&id=val2&id=val3
Can I get val1, val2 and val3 in the jsp ? (using either GET or POST)
Thanks in advance,

If you use a bunch of checkboxes in a form, all named the same thing, then the way you retrieve them is by using a different method on the request.

It's in the API. Look at getParameter, and then look two down.
I agree. Here's the link:
