When i run the above code, a table is displayed with links. when i click on the link, the control is passed to the servlet 'ProductController' and i want to get the value of the link i have clicked.... If suppose the link clicked is 'ABC', this value should be read in the servlet..When i run the above code, the value of 'obj' is printed as 4 irrespective of any link i click in the jsp. Kindly help with a solution.....

Do you really not indent your code? It's unreadable as is.

Yes very bad indentation...

anyway, you have an iterator object that is assigned to your obj Object as in the code below, and in your servlet you will get the last value in the list assigned in the internal loop.

ofcourse you are writing something wrong here, because in the loop you will keep overwrite the value of the parameter "value" in the session scope and in the end get the last value. if you want to know which link has been clicked you should add an (id) as a parameter in the link for example like this:

By the way I see you are using <%= %> and <% %> tags. try to avoid them as much as possible, and use EL and JSTL instead such as ${}
