in our application we need to send an email to other user, for this I have created a popup window with one text field (for to address) and send button, when the current user click on the send then the popup window will be closed and in from the main window we need to take that email address and will do the action (that means will send an email).

here I can able to get emaill address from popup window and append that email address to action. see the following action code

When I run the application i get the alert message final link = "/myapp/

in the Action class, I tried to get the
String to_Address = request.getParameter("toAddress"); from the request, but its getting null. why ?

and I veryfy the url bar for this parameter, here I found missing

please someone help me to get the email address to the action.

Try creating a hidden textbox named "toAddress" and set the email address in this. Refrain from rewriting the URL in your JS and simply submit the form.
Hopefully this should solve your problem, or you can always write back.

My guess is that the URL you're getting in the alert box is not the actual URL that's getting submitted. Double check your JSP code to see if this may be the case.

Here's an alternative: You could just create a hidden field named "toAddress" and then have your JavaScript code set the value of this field before the form is submitted.
