The same way you would deal with them in any other
before you use the reference.
String xyz = request.getParameter( "whatever" ); if (xyz != null) xyz.trim();
A useful idiom in JSP:
String xyz = request.getParameter( "whatever" ); if (xyz == null) xyz = " "
Another, to safely compare strings when the parameter might be null:
if ("xyz".equals( request.getParameter( "whatever" )) ...
