I am having the following issue with getParameter method of HttpServletRequest. I have a JSP which is a for musing POST method. One of the form elements is a radio button that has an ASCII value for a comma, , for its value. For example, <input type="radio" name="radioName" value="Yes, more than 60 days ago" />Yes, more than 60 days ago. When I do a request.getParameter("radioName"); on this the , is converted into an actual comma. Any ideas where exactly this is happening and why and is there anything I can do about this. This happens both on Tomcat and WSAD 5.0?
How would the application server know that the "&" inside "Bonnie+&+Clyde" was actually part of the value and not a marker to deliniate the next set of name / value pairs?? The solution is to encode all the param names and values with those funky %XX codes so no one gets confused. Make Sense? [ September 01, 2004: Message edited by: Jessica Sant ]
