I am creating a web application using some init param for servlet.
I am using tomcat 6.
When I am using a '&' character in init param value tag I am getting error.
What may be the reason.

What is the error? Could you post the code of the init here?

Properly you need to encode the "&" character.
& a m p ;
Or try the unicode definition: \u0026
I agree. Here's the link:
