    How to post a form to a servlet in CQ5.5?


      Hi all,

        I'm using CQ5 to develop some things. and now i am not so clearly how to post a 'FORM' and accept with a SERVLET.


        I've seen this 'http://forums.adobe.com/message/4932739#4932739' already, and try it. But once i add a new <input /> like :<input name="age" value="age" />.

      and i submit this form, then tell me error: javax.jcr.nodetype.ConstraintViolationException: no matching property definition found for {}age


        see the code


           <!-- String action = /content/myproject/en/thanks   -->

          <form id="submitForm" method="post" action="<%= action %>.POST.html" onsubmit="return validate();">

              <input type="hidden" name=":redirect" value="<%=resourceResolver.map(action)%>" />

              <input type="hidden" name=":formpath" value="<%=currentNode.getPath()%>" />

              <input type="hidden" name=":formtype" value="<%=component.getResourceType()%>" />

              <input type="hidden" name="_charset_" value="utf-8" />

              <input name="age" value="26" />  <!-- if i comment this line, it can submit success, otherwise show me Status: 500. -->

              <input type="submit" value="Submit"/>




          @Component(immediate = true, metatype = false, label = "QuestionnaireServlet")


         @Properties(value = {

                          @org.apache.felix.scr.annotations.Property(name = "sling.servlet.methods", value = { "POST" }),

                          @org.apache.felix.scr.annotations.Property(name = "sling.servlet.resourceTypes", value = { "sling/servlet/default" }),

                          @org.apache.felix.scr.annotations.Property(name = "sling.servlet.selectors", value = { "POST" }),

                          @org.apache.felix.scr.annotations.Property(name = "sling.servlet.extensions", value = { "html" })


         public class QuestionnaireServlet extends SlingAllMethodsServlet implements

                          OptingServlet {


          protected void doPost(SlingHttpServletRequest request,

                                    SlingHttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException,

                                    IOException {

                //it seems never call this function.




      can anybody told me in details ?
