Checking to see if request.getParameter("myparam") exists

    I'm new to java and JSPs. I was wondering if there is an easy way to
    check if a parameter exists. I need to handle the page differently if
    the parameter is not there.

    Thanks

    does it not just return null if it is missing?

  3. if (request.getParameter("name") == null) {
    // it's not there
    }

    I still think request.hasParameter("name") would have been nice to have.
    Oh well.
