Hi everyone. Having a very funny problem. New here in Servlet stuff and so need your help. From a simple html page i want to pass a input to a servlet where it will do some specific talks. Now the logic i was thinking is like: If the user puss null value then the servlet will check and will say "Sorry" or else the servlet will be happy to serve.

I used the IF..ELSE statement to do the evaluation part in the Servlet but don't know why it is everytime going to the ELSE part of the statement even though i am not passing anything from the html page.

The Html page is as follows:

And the Servlet "" is as follows:

Can any one please let me know where i am doing the mistake?

Thank you very much.
