Well, in my case I have my JSP with variable # of Input Fields..
So, when I was using ..

I am noticing that the field elements are retrieved in REVERSE order...
Will that be the case ALWAYS?? or there is a possibility that sometimes..
it will be from top-to-bottom..
Your help will be Greatly Appreciated..

I don't believe there is any specified order in which the parameters will be retrieved by using the enumumerator. The API does not specify an order as far as I see, it's an implementation detail.
I'm moving this to the Servlets forum because it's an javax.servlet.ServletRequest issue.

The order of request parameters to a web application is something you should NEVER depend on. Browsers and servers can and do arbitrarily change that order.
