this is wriiten that ---:

The most frequently used methods are GET and POST. Put simply, the GET method is designed for getting information (a document, a chart, or the results from a database query), while the POST method is designed for posting information (a credit card number, some new chart data, or information that is to be stored in a database). To use a bulletin board analogy, GET is for reading and POST is for tacking up new material.

what th above statement means.is it right and how
thank you

This has been discussed to death in this and the JSP forum.
Just put "GET POST' in the search window and you will find hundreds of threads (400 for this forum, to be exact) like this one:
