Following is an example that passes two values using the HTML FORM and the submit button. We are going to use the same JSP main.jsp to handle this input.
<html> <body> <form action = "main.jsp" method = "GET"> First Name: <input type = "text" name = "first_name"> <br /> Last Name: <input type = "text" name = "last_name" /> <input type = "submit" value = "Submit" /> </form> </body> </html>
Keep this HTML in a file Hello.htm and put it in <Tomcat-installation-directory>/webapps/ROOT directory. When you would access http://localhost:8080/Hello.htm, you will receive the following output.
Try to enter the First Name and the Last Name and then click the submit button to see the result on your local machine where tomcat is running. Based on the input provided, it will generate a similar result as mentioned in the above example.
