Hi All ,
I have a javascript where I have some values to be passed as hidden values . I am doing a form.submit using post method in it.
I need to pass those values to the jsp which is invoked from the javascript itself .
Now , how do I invoke the URL along with those values passed to it .
I am doing a but I am not able to pass the values to the jsp .
Any help is appreciated .

Are you doing a or a form submit. You say that you are going both, but you can;t do both at the same time.

If you want the values to be submitted, you'll need to set them as values of form elements (such as hidden elements).

For, pass them as a query string on the URL.

That assumes you can figure out which one you want to do.
