I believe the browser only sends the clicked submit button value. So the
trick (if you would call it that) is to name all your submit buttons the

<input type="submit" name="action" value="New">
<input type="submit" name="action" value="Edit">
<input type="submit" name="action" value="Delete">

Whichever one the user clicks is the one sent to the server:

request.getParameter("action")=="New" | "Edit" | "Delete";

Hope this helps. Note: the img and the input type=image tags do not do
