Hi, If "Get" is used to get something, Why sun/Oracle gave us the option to send even limited data to the Server.

It has nothing to do with Sun or Oracle. The behavior of HTTP has nothing to do with Java or any Java service.

If you couldn't send info on what to get, how would the server know what to return?
