Hi, I need to pass on parameters from from on JSP to another JSP on click of a reference (href HTML tag).
Please let me know how to go about it.

First, read up on MVC (model view controller). JSPs should call something on the server like a servlet and not JSPs directly. JSPs are just for display.

To pass parameters in a URL, it looks like myUrl?one=1&two=2

If i have the URL where i have all the parameters present which needs to be sent out to another JSP can I use href tags.
Something like this.

And in the Test.jsp i have request.getParameter to fetch the value sent.
Will it work?
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
