You need to put name and value for each checkbox.
Go through a HTML tutorial real quick.

Only the values from the checkboxes which are checked will be sent to the servlet. Retrieve the values using getParameterValues(String).
For example, given this snippet of HTML
<form>
<input type=checkbox name=Test value=1>One
<input type=checkbox name=Test value=2>Two
<input type=checkbox name=Test value=3>Three
</form>
If the user checked the boxes labelled One and Three, then this code in your servlet
String[] values = req.getParameterValues("Test");
will result in values being a 2 element String array such that one element will be "1" and the other element will be "3".
