Below is my form in a jsp, which on submit calls a servlet submit.do, at the moment the servlet is using GET method and in servlet I am able to getParameters for both textarea and the hidden control, but when I make it to post, it returns null for both of the parameters, I have no idea why.
Please help me with this, i am really puzzled with this
Obviously i tried with POST only and it was not working, with GET its working.
I was debugging the problem just now and found an interesting behavior.
I modified servlet code and added RequestDispatcher at the end and forwarded the request to a JSP as -
(i have excluded the irrelevant code here)
Now when i ran the prog in debug mode, i saw that after request is dispatched to jsp the doPost is called again, and this process repeats exactly three times, and the most interesting part is that in second time i can see the parameters being returned properly but in the first and third it is not.
