How to load the form values automatically?

fpalma Newbie

Hi all!

 

I have done a servlet to manage one form, but when I want to get the values introduced by the user, I have to access to the parameter of the form and update manually the class corresponding to the parameter. This is my code:

 

When the jsp file is loaded, the user sees the default value from the class "priceIncrease":

 

    <input name="increasepercent" path="percentage" value="${priceIncrease.getPercentage()}" />

 

When the method doPost is called by the form, the class "priceIncrease" is not updated with the value modified by the user, so I have to do this:

 

    String increase1 = (String) request.getParameter("increasepercent");                     // access to the parameter of the form

    PriceIncrease increase2 = (PriceIncrease) contexto.getAttribute("priceIncrease"); // access to the corresponding class

    increase2.setPercentage(Integer.parseInt(increase1));                                            // update the class

 

How can I update the corresponding class (priceIncrease) automatically?

 

Thank you very much
