i need a small clarification regarding servlets:
using a HTML/JS form, my output is a new window named mywin with the following contents:


now i want to use a servlet to extract the contents of the window (mywin)
can u help me by giving a sample servlet code that extracts the data as above?
thanks in advance..

it looks like more a xml file than an html-window.
if you couldn't submit the window (-> sending the windwo content back to the server) the server never gets grip on the data.
i suggest to build a form with this code in it:

<input type="hidden" name="desc" value="C:\Project\abc.svg">
<input type="hidden" name="notes" value="C:\Project\data.txt">
and then put a form around and display the information and a subitbutton to send it back.
Then you could get it in the servlet by get it from the request with req.getParameter("desc"/"notes") and you get a String back with either the desc-value or the notes-value.
Hope that helps.
