I want to add some fields in requesting header in my JSP and then want to get it in servlet.But i couldn't find any addheader method in httpServletRequest. So could any one tell me that how can fields can be added in header in request.

You cannot change the headers sent with the request. What type of fields are these, and why can't you pass them via form parameters?

You can't meddle with existing headers in a HttpServletRequest, however you can add arbitrary "attributes" which will be preserved when forwarding the request to a servlet. See the setAttribute and getAttribute methods in the ServletRequest interface.
