I know how to send a post request using html input tags but is it possible to send a variable value to the server?
I have this variable:

<%!String name="gon";%>

I want to send the variable value ( gon ) using post request, can i? How?

Try using hidden fields

No. In fact, there should be no Java variables, or Java code of any kind, in a modern JSP.

Yes it is possible, and you can do it in many ways.

What is your requirements?
what is gon? it is something static? if so make it a hidden field. is it not static? what is it then? how does it change? what makes it change?

should gon be send when you hit a submit button in a form ?

It is hard to say what the best solution is for you without the excact requirements.
I agree. Here's the link:
