Pass parameter on URL to struts app?

My app will be installed on the company's intranet. It is designed to work in both english & welsh languages using resource bundles.
The problem is that only some of the intranet's areas are be in welsh so the browser is set to english - so the locale stuff won't work.
Links to my app will be put on the intranet, one each for english & welsh versions. What I need to do is pass a flag from these links to my app to indicate which language to use. I can't seem to pass the flag in!
Tried something like this "http://localhost:9001/ABC.do?lang=cy" hoping the lang attribute would be readable from the request object in the corresponding action class - but it's not - it's null!!!
How can I/is it possible to do this? - any ideas?
thanks

Did you try setting a session attribute? You can then pass it along in the request.

ah what a numpty - use getParameter() instead of getAttribute() & it works!
