I want to create a on-line bidding program, for example I have the following screen dispaly: IBM desktop model xxx1 IBM desktop model xxx2 IBM desktop model xxx3 IBM desktop model xxx4 Dell desktop model xxx5 All of these items on the screen are hyperlinks to one same servlet. The purpose of the servlet is to check which item the user clicked, and then display corresponding description about the item. My problem is how the servelt know which hyperlink the user clicked on the screen? How should I program it? Thanks
Hi I think you have to write your hyperlinks with a query string as shown below. <a href=http://localhost:8080/servlet/BiddingServlet?name=IBMDES1> IBM DESKTOP ONE </a><br> <a href=http://localhost:8080/servlet/BiddingServlet?name=IBMDES2> IBM DESKTOP TWO </a> I don't know whether it works or not .
