doGet() vs doPost()

I have an HTML form (Welcome.html).
On submitting the form, I call goGet() of servletA.
doGet() of servletA displays another form (Data) and calls doPost() to service the request enetred in this form.
Afetr completeion of the request, control returns to doGet() and once again displays form (Data).
And so on...
Will I need doGet() and doPost() both or can just 1 method take care of everything?
If I want to print say an Array of integers got by processing form Data,
how would I display it in HTML using the servlet?

To display array of integers u first convert each integer into String & insert it i html
for e.g 's'(for e.g. s="11") is string containing integer value then u have to write
out.print("<html><body>"+s+"</body></html> ;
I agree. Here's the link:
