I have this code:
<form method="POST" action="test.do"> Select Beer Characteristics<p> Color: <select name="color" size="1"> <option>light</option> <option>brown</option> <option>amber</option> <option>dark</option> </select> <br><br> <center> <input type="SUBMIT"> </center> </form>
then inside of doGet for my
i have this:
// output selected color String c = request.getParameter("color"); out.print( c ); // printing out the variable c always says "null"...
The output is always null...
what the heck am i doing wrong? I want it to say light if the user chose light, dark if they pick dark etc ...
what little thing am i forgetting?

Your method attributes indicates the HTTP request is of type POST.
You should write the above logic in doPost() but not in doGet().
The default http request is GET.
