Hi guys, I am new to servlets- jsp and I have been trying to write a session track problem but I have some trouble in passing hidden form "names" to servlet.
No matter which item I choose from drop down list , I always see the first item in the orderpage which is first item in ddlist or I get "No items ..." message. I may need a small iteration in OrderPage servlet that will take "names" of hidden forms but I could not figure out how to do it .
I am sending ddlist page and order page , if you have any idea or if you see something wrong , I'd love to hear it..

I see "itemID1" etc in the hidden field names - you are asking for "itemID" which does not appear to exist.

Even thought I write "itemID1" in the orderform , I can not get "ItemID2".
The problem is How can I iterate "itemID " such that when I choice ,for instance ItemID6 , I get the ItemID6 ?
