Get Request Parameter in JSP page

With this example we are going to demonstrate how to get Request Parameters in a JSP page. JavaServer Pages (JSP) is a server-side programming technology that enables the creation of dynamic, platform-independent method for building Web-based applications. JSP have access to the entire family of Java APIs, including the JDBC API to access enterprise databases. In short, to get Request Parameters in a JSP page you should:

  • Create a jsp page that begins with the <%code fragment%> scriptlet. It can contain any number of JAVA language statements, variable or method declarations, or expressions that are valid in the page scripting language.
  • Use the getParameter(String name) API method of javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest object to get the value of a request parameter as a String.

Let’s take a look at the code snippet that follows:  

GetRequestParameter.jsp

<html>

<head>
	<title>Java Code Geeks Snippets - Get Request Parameter in JSP Page</title>
</head>

<body>

	Parameter myparam: <%= request.getParameter("myparam") %>
	
</body>

URL:

http://localhost:8080/jcgsnippets/GetRequestParameter.jsp?myparam=myvalue

Output:

Parameter myparam: myvalue
