    public void doGet(HttpServletRequest req, HttpServletResponse res)
    throws ServletException, IOException {
    PrintWriter pw = res.getWriter();
    String color = req.getParameter("color") ;
    pw.println("The color is" + color) ;

    as you want to have the color value to be displayed then you need to replace with below statement

    pw.println("<body bgcolor = \""+color+"\">") ;
