Just a question. I saw your filter again and there is this request.getAttribute("cate"); This gets for you only an attribut which is stored in the request scope (it doesnt have anything to do with the html forms). If you want get the your form text field you should use request.getParameter("cate"); Furthermore try to look to the documentation for "getParameter()" method. I dont know what you exactly do in your app, but there could be a problem with request.getInputStream() or request.getReader() as described in the doc.
