This is my html code:
<select size="1" name="qualification">
<option value="M.Tech">M.Tech</option>
<option value="M.C.A.">M.C.A.</option>
<option value="B.Tech" selected>B.Tech</option>
</select>

And this is my jsp code:
<%= request.getParameter("qualification")%>

In the jsp, "null" is being displayed ...
But all the text type fields of the html are properly retrieved ....

Any suggestions...?

P.S. i have tried using tags(along with a bean) to do this too.....nothing works

submit the html page and give the action attribute as jsp page then you will get the value.Before the page is submitted you cant retrieve the value using request.getParameter()

The html code is in a Html page (with a form whose action attribute is set to a different jsp page)...and the jsp page is different....

i guess i didnt specify my problem carefully!

Double check your HTML to make sure that the select list properly nested inside your form.

Look for nested forms.
