reading parameter from the request object in ActionServlet

I'am trying to read a parameter from the request object in my ActionServlet class which extends the struts ActionServlet class.

I have included the piece of code in the doPost method
public void doPost(HttpServletRequest request,HttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException,IOException
System.out.println("operation: " + request.

But it is seen that I get the following output though the "operation" contains some value.
operation: null

However in my Action class when I try to print (request.getParameter("operation")) it displays the values properly.
operation: get
operation: save

Does anyone have an explanation for this? Why am I getting null value in the Action servlet for request.getParameter("operation").
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
