String username = request.getParameter("username");
if ( username != null && username.length() > 0 ) {
RequestDispatcher dispatcher =
getServletContext().getRequestDispatcher("/response");
if (dispatcher != null)
dispatcher.include(request, response);
I have done this in the first servlet i have to pass the name to another servlet and check it there
donno how to get it in that servlet?

It may be a silly question, but why does the code which checks the username need to be a servlet? Would it not make more sense just to use a regular java class, and simply call a method, passing in the username as a parameter?

getServletContext().getRequestDispatcher("/response").forward(HttpServletRequest,HttpServletResponse);

How about storing the username to a session variable, then retrieving that session variable in the second servlet.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
