In one of the Jsp page, i am having a combo box which will display the static data. Upon selecting the value from the drop down combo box and clicking on button, it will navigagte to the servlet and will display the selected value from the combo box.
Below are the codings for JSP and servlets. My problem here is, selected value of the combo box is not passing to the servlet.
Please tell me, where am i doing wrong and please give me the correct code. ( i am sure my JSP coding is not correct.)
I am not sure, whether this question belongs to Servlet forum or JSP forum, hence i am posting in both the places.
<form method=post action="http://localhost:8080/servlets/test/radio">

<select id='cmb'>
<input type=submit value="OK">
package test;
import javax.servlet.*;
import javax.servlet.http.*;
import java.util.*;
public class radio extends HttpServlet{
public void init(ServletConfig sc) throws ServletException//, IOException
System.out.println("Into Init of test1");
public void doPost(HttpServletRequest req,HttpServletResponse res) throws ServletException,IOException{
PrintWriter out=res.getWriter();
String str=req.getParameter("cmb");
out.println("You have selected "+str);
out.println("You have not selected any thing");
public void doGet(HttpServletRequest req,HttpServletResponse res) throws ServletException,IOException{
Thanks in Advance,

The value of the selected option will be passed back to the server.
If you don't specifically supply a value the browser will generate a sequence number for you (starting at 0 I think).

Would get you "SERVLET1" on doing

in the servlet.

Please do not post the same question in multiple forums. It wastes people's time writing redundant answers.
Please continue any discussion here.
