Hello,

How to run (one of many) action with form data.

More specific...

I have a table, with radio button in each row with id value.
I want to fire some action with selected identifier.

The greatest solution for me is to use links points to differents servlets (for show, modify, delete row). But when I use a href I don't have a form values.

I can do this with javascript, it would be great not using js.
I can also do something similar putting my actions to select element in form and handle action by one servlet defined in form action.

Any best practices for this basic problem?

Avoiding Javascript when it's the most appropriate tool for the job doesn't make a lot of sense.

Generally, in cases where more than one action needs to take place for a form submission, I'll use a small Javascript snippet to swap out the form action.
