Example on getParameterNames() method of Servlet Request Object

Servlets »on Jan 19, 2013 { 4 Comments } By Sivateja

So far we have worked on getParameter(), let us see how to use getParameterNames() method. With getParameter() we are able to find parameter values by passing parameter name, just like..

In html:
<input type=”text” name=”n1″>

In Java:
String val=req.getParameter(“n1″);

Parameter name – n1
Parameter value – val

If a client send the data to the servlet, that data will be available in the object of HttpServletRequest interface. In case of getParameter() method we have to pass input parameter name and it will give the value. If you are not aware of input parameter name ? or if you have 50+ input values its really tedious to use getParameter() method.

That’s why this getParameterNames() came into picture :-)
