What exactly do you mean by "send data"? URLs can contain parameters, so that would be one way of including data. But that's a general feature of HTML/HTTP, and not Spring-specific.

Whatever you have in a request attribute value can most certainly be embedded in an <A HREF="..."> tag. URL parameters are the way to do that.
But I don't understand what an HREF has to do with an HTML form. Do you want to have a link that submits a form? If so, why not use a submit button?
