The code "if(request.getParameter("post") != null )" and "if(request.getParameter("addBulletin") != null" is testing whether a button was clicked within jsp. How does a button become not null and with what not null value is it populated? I can't find the answer on google.

A quick out.println("**"+request.getParameter("post")+"**"); indicated that the value attribute of the input tag not only shows as the button's text but it is also the value associated with getParameter. I didn't need google after all!!!
