using request parameters to set up a bean via servlet

Well there is a
<jsp:useBean id="retire" scope="application" class="com.MyBean" />
<jsp:setProperty name="retire" property="*" />


This sets up all the bean properties which have matching names in submitted form automatically.

My question is that is there any such great method in servlets to set up a bean using request parameters automatically???
I want to send form parameters to a servlet that should set up the bean as attribute to be used by full application...

Not per se. But it's pretty easy to do it using the bean methods. There are also a lot of 3rd party bean-handling libraries out there that might have something similar.

P.S. Submitting to a servlet is a much better practice than submitting to a JSP, even if it does seem like more work at first.

Check out the classes and methods in the java.beans package, and perhaps the Commons BeanUtils library.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
