Hi,
I have a standalone client which invokes a Servlet.
I want to send an INTEGER ARRAY as a parameter to the Servlet. Can I do that?
If so, can anybody show me how??
Thanks

hey
Try using streams. either ByteArrayOutput or ObjectOutput ....
From client I guess you are making URLConnection to the servlet. So, once you have the URLConnection object do connection.writeObject(); and on the servlet side do request.readObject(); look on google for this kind of URLConnection examples..

If I were passing the INTEGER ARRAY alone that might have worked fine.
I am passing 4 parameters. One of them is an INTEGER ARRAY.
Here is the code that I have:

Like Maulin said, you could do this with object serialization. Look at the API for java.io.ObjectOutputStream and ObjectInputStream. Arrays of primitives and Strings are automatically Serializable as are Collections.
