According to the API - the map that getParameterMap returns has the name of the parameter as the key and a String array as the value. This array may be size 1 if there was only one parameter with this name, or it may be much larger if there were multiple parameters (for example from a bunch of checkboxes) with the same name.
Therefore you do something like:

(I was just now coding exactly that for a new test engine - how timely )
Working with this Map is the most general way to handle request values even though it takes an extra step.
