Please TellTheDetails - What is your confusion?
Have you ever checked the documentation of HttpServletRequest ?

There are no such methods as getattributes() and getparameters() -- they are getAttribute() and getParameter().

And they aren't even close to the same thing.

Request parameters are those submitted to a servlet as part of the request -- form values, for example.

Objects can be placed into request scope, also called scoped variables, with setAttribute() and retrieved with getAttribute() (or with the EL in JSPs).
