Order of parameters with Tomcat

I am transferring my servlets from the Acme web Server to Tomcat. Using Acme, I can assume the parameters will be processed by my servlet in the order they appear on the address bar. This is not the case with Tomcat.
Is there any way I can force my servlets under Tomcat to accept the parameters in the order they appear on the address bar?
Thanks in advance

No, thats just the way Tomcat handles request parameters - I think it is a Hashtable.
However, if you know the names in advance you can retrieve them by name in any order you want.
