Default How to get the special chars(%#&'') from JSP to Ja

Hi Friends
I have a text box in my JSP. I can enter anything in the text box. And I have to retrive the value from JSP and store it in DB. I'm getting all the special characters except &%#. I tried with URL rewriting and setting into form also. Whenever I enter %#&, I'm getting empty values. How can I get these chars. Please help me.

Hi kasipandian

Which method do you use to send data to server?

It seems that you have used 'GET' method. In this method, all sending parameters are concatenated at the end of request URL (e.g. http://url?data2=lobloblob&data2=bolbolbol.

As some characters like '%' and '#' can't be used in URI, when your data contains such characters, your server code would not retrieve correct data. I think methods like encodeURI and encodeURIComponent can help you in this situations.

In your client code, call one of these Javascript methods and pass your sending data to one of them (I don't actualy know which would solve your problem) and send their returned value to your server. You can find more documentation on these methods on MSDN available at :
