What have you done to debug this? One of the most useful things to do is to turn on the debugger in the browser and actually look at the request. Is the parameter value there in the post body as expected? If yes, the problem is in servlet. If not, the problem is in the HTML.

Thanks Bear,

The Debugger helped, I used == to compare string objects in the model class, my bad. So it wasn't a null in first place.



Also thanks for info on how to post.
