Two questions...

(1) Does your servlet implement a doPost() method? Since you are POSTing the form, you need to do that.


(2) Is there a typo in your form there?  I see:

<form method=3D"POST" action=3D"BeerSelect">

That's not proper... my guess is you want:

<form method="3DPOST" action="3DBeerSelect">

does anybody know how to fix this problem.
  Invocation of servlet prompts a messagebox posing a questions " do you
want to save this ?" instead of executing it and returing the output in the
html document.

I wrote my first html and servlet and deployed it on tomcat 5.5. The html
works okay when I call it from the browser. The servlet too works okay
when
I call its doget() method by invoking it from the browser. EG:.
http://localhost:8080/VBeer/BeerSelect
However, when i try to invoke the servlet from an html form I get a
message
box - (file download security warning) - Do you want to save this file ?
It has a
funny number suffixed to the my servlet name.


Not sure what is happening.
Here is my HTML code snippet.

<body>

<h1 align =3D "center">Beer selecton Page </h1>

<form method=3D"POST" action=3D"BeerSelect">

<p>Select Beer Characteristics</p>

Thanks !
