URL rewriting is used for URLs that get sent from the server to the client, whereas POST is a way to transfer data from the client to the server. So the two don't intersect. Can you clarify what you mean?

doGet and doPost are for handling client requests; you can have either or both in a servlet, depending on how it is used. But what do those methods have to do with URL rewriting?

What Bear meant was "what exactly did you try, and how exactly did it not work?" TellTheDetails

Sample doGet & doPost



Do you have a form element to test your post

Yuvraj your sample code has only a doGet() method. Now if a HTTP request uses GET, your code will work fine. But if a POST is used, it will fail, since your servlet does not support it.
Refer to arulk's code for a sample implementation of both doGet() and doPost().

Along with the servlet, if you have the security constraints in your DD,then the DD must also support both these methods.


Hope this helps
