I think you're confused about how web apps work: only strings are passed between the server and the client.

I know it's late, but I think this thread would sit better on our Sevlets forum.

I don't understand why the code compiles in the first place.

The setParameter has setParameter(String parameterName, String parameterValue) -- however it belong to the PostMethod
class. getParams() returns a HttpMethodParams which does not have any method called as setParameter().
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
