I am having a jsp file in which there are two different forms "f1" & "f2". I am having below three conditions

1. I have to submit form f1 only
2. I have to submit form f2 only
3. I have to submit form f1 & f2 both

for 3rd condition mentioned above, i need a single button by which i can submit both the form f1 & f2.
currently i am using the below java script but its now working ane giving me null value when i am trying for both form submission.

Please find below my jsp code:

why don't you combine both fields in a single form? What is the business need?

If you can't do that, before submitting your form set value of a field in hidden field of other form.

Hi,

In the above code i just show two fields where in actual i have 40+ fields (including some drop downs) so using hidden value will be a bit problematic.

i need to have separate form submission option because i have three scenarios as mentioned in the initial post.
so can you please sugget me on a alternative.

You cannot submit two forms at the same time.

You haven't really explained why you feel that you need to.

thanks for the reply..

On my page i am giving the flexibility to user that they might only enter the data for one form and keep the other for blank. then i need to update the single form only.
If user enter data in both forms then i have to update the full data.

Still not seeing why there needs to be two forms.

I'd like to hear more about what's actually trying to be accomplished before jumping to Ajax.

Why not use one form with two different submit buttons? Use only the form data you need based on the submit button the user presses.

 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
