Subject request.getParameter(), works on get, not on post
Date Mon, 17 Jan 2005 14:08:23 GMT
With an input form

		<form method="get"
      <label for="reposo">Archive number:</label>
        <input name="reposno"
               maxlength="8" value="123456"> 

in I have

    public void doGet(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response)
	throws IOException, ServletException {
	HttpSession session = request.getSession(); // 
	//String s = request.getQueryString();
	String t = request.getParameter("reposno");
	System.err.println("Ano is " + t);

which nicely prints out the Archive number value.

When I change the get to a post,
getParameter returns null, intimating that there is no such form item.

I can access the data (though very messily) using the fileUpload object,
but it seems so simple using getParameter();

Can anyone suggest why it won't work with the post please?
