passing a url paramter to a servlet

Is there a way to pass a url as a parameter to a servlet?

For example, if I post:
http://www.mydomain.com/abc?param1=hello¶m2=http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=java&btnG=Google+Search

And then in my abc servlet:
String param1 = request.getParameter("param1");
String param2 = request.getParameter("param2");

Sure. But like any other data serving as a query parameter, it must be properly URL-encoded.
