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.HttpServletRequestobject to get the value of a request parameter as a String.
Let’s take a look at the code snippet that follows:
<html> <head> <title>Java Code Geeks Snippets - Get Request Parameter in JSP Page</title> </head> <body> Parameter myparam: <%= request.getParameter("myparam") %> </body>
Parameter myparam: myvalue
This was an example of how to get Request Parameters in a JSP page.
