getParameterValues issue

I don't know if this should be in Spring forum or not but don't know where it should go. I wrote a Spring MVC application also using Tiles. I need to use a pick list multiple select but when my controller tries to call request.getParameterValues it is alway null. I have put in request.getParameterNames() to see if I can even see the parameter but it doesn't even see it. I have tried eveything short of bleeding on the keyboard but am still not able to get the values. I also tried passing it as a string (javascript formats) with values seperated by a comma then use a tokenizer to seperate in the controller. When it is only one value, the parameter shows up but if I have two or more, the parameter disappears. At the end of my coding rope. Please help me retain my sanity..

Have you used an HTTP sniffer tool to see if the parameter is even in the request?

Bear,

I haven't tried a sniffer. Do you of a good, or even bad, free one? I did put request.getParameterNames() and write out to the log. I don't see the parameter in the request. I am stumped because the HTML is very vanilla and should be picked up.

HttpFox is a free plugin for Firefox.
