Hi,
I have a standalone client which invokes a Servlet.
I want to send an INTEGER ARRAY as a parameter to the Servlet. Can I do that?
If so, can anybody show me how??
Thanks

hey
Try using streams. either ByteArrayOutput or ObjectOutput ....
From client I guess you are making URLConnection to the servlet. So, once you have the URLConnection object do connection.writeObject(); and on the servlet side do request.readObject(); look on google for this kind of URLConnection examples..

Like Maulin said, you could do this with object serialization. Look at the API for java.io.ObjectOutputStream and ObjectInputStream. Arrays of primitives and Strings are automatically Serializable as are Collections.
