Pass parameters to the servlet

I have a MIDlet which calls a Servlet. So far what I did was just used the write(byte b) method of the DataOutputStream to write the parameter to the servlet. What I want to know is, how can I write two different parameters. For example 'name' and the 'age' to the servlet at once. Same time how can I get these two parameters seperately. Thanks in advance........

I'm not sure if this is the best advice, but if it suits your needs, you can pass them when you call the servlet - just as you would if you were sending them in the url of a jsp page

Hi Ransika,

I'm afraid I don't know anything about J2ME. You may be better off posting your question in the J2ME forum.

However, if a MIDlet is the J2ME equivalent of a Servlet (!? ?!) then this may help: if you wanted to call a servlet (called Servlet2) from a servlet, passing additional parameters, you would do the following:

Maybe you can translate that to J2ME somehow?

I agree. Here's the link:
