In servlets, Why do we need both GET and POST method implementations?..

Answer / upender

I agree the above two answers. Here is my view.
HTTP Get method perform the following scenarios.

1) By default form submission without specifying method
name
2)if you click on hyperlinkS or images
3) or if you type url in address bar in brower

and Get there is no side effect. simple it get the resource
form serverside. Some time we require to deal with headers

Get can send only character data and limited data.and also
It can't support binary data.

POST method can support binary data and bulk data.

Answer / abhijitbaji

if you are using HttpServlet then you have to implement
doGet() and or doPost() as per the method specified in jsp.
by default method type is "GET"

if you are using GenericServlet, you have to implement
servive()

In servlets, Why do we need both GET and POST method implementations?..

Answer / amit pandey

In servlet, the default method is doget(), which has
various limitations like the request length shuld be < than
1024 characters, all the information r send as URL, which
is not secure, large data like images cannot be send in URL.
Hence the POST method is implementated that overcome all
this issues w.r.t. the GET method.
Hence, in order that application shuld be more secure &
user orientated, both the methods are impelmentated.
