I have a JSP page. On that page I display hyper links. When the user clicks on a hyper link it must pass on parameter besides whatever the URL currently carries. If my current status of url is http://localhost/MyApp/test?teststring=hello and I click on the hyperlink shown on this page it the url must be http://localhost/MyApp/test?teststring=hello&urlstring=testing. which appends the parameter to the existing parameters

If I give the url href parameter as urlstring=testing my url becomes http://localhost/MyApp/test?urlstring=testing and I am losing tghe other parameter. how can i achieve this ?

thank you

Why can't you just create the hyperlink with the proper URL in the first place? What make you wait until after the click to try and append a new parameter to the URL?

In my application I would not know what all things the end user chooses so it is not a static url for the hyper link. that is the reason why i need to keep on adding all the parameteres the user chooses. any thoughts ?

So the value are the result of use interaction with the page? If so, then this is something that must be accomplished with JavaScript; JSP cannot help you.

How to do it depends upon when and where you are gather ing the information from and how he request will be initiated.

Shall I move this to the HTML forum, or would you like to start a new topic there with more information provided?
