passing a parameter without form - from jsp to servlet

Hello,
I have a JSP which displays Category names from DB. I want to click on a hyperlink of a Category & the next page will show the SubCategories under that category.

I am facing problem to pass the corresponding Category ID to the Servlet when it is clicked.

I tried using:it gets forwarded to the servlet before clicking on the link.

So is there any way of passing the parameter to the desired Servlet without submitting a form? or if there is no way without form, then what is the proper solution??

a lot of thanks in advance

Well, you're using jsp:forward-what did you expect?

Why wouldn't you just create the href with the parameter?!

href here in your codes are not effected, in other words, you have no chance to use the href you have defined.

Thanks for your reply.
I have omitted jsp:forward and used href with query string and this works :-D
