What is passed is HTTP requests. The form data is encoded into the request, and no HTML is ever sent to the servlet. How it is encoded is determined by the method attribute of your form (GET or POST).

GET and POST requests look different. Following, are examples of each:

GET
GET (with form data)POST (with form data)For an example of POST (multi-part) check out this topic: http://www.javaranch.com/ubb/Forum7/HTML/006987.html

Hope that helps you.

Thanks for the information. I especially like the examples outlined by Mike Curwen. That helps me out.
