Subject Re: Help on Requst Params in Post
Date Sun, 09 Apr 2006 18:25:18 GMT
Hi i'mactually doing this in a project and to send objects and keep the 
parameters appart I send the parameters appenden to the end of the 
url... something like:

new PostMethod("theURLofMyServlet" + "?" + "myparameter1" + "=" + 

and use a RequestEntity to send the objects...

... in the servlet I use something like

int param1 = Integer.parseInt(request.getParameter("myparameter1"));
 to get the parameter and ... to get the objects something like

 in = new ObjectInputStream(new 

        //get the client id
        int clientId = (Integer) in.readObject();

this is a silly example sorry i dont send you a better example because y 
made a group of classes that help me to handle this type of processing 
so i decide to write this instead of sending the real code...

maybe someone else can see this nad make and opinion if there is a 
better way
