What sort of design guidelines o one should follow for a small web application with 5-6 screens. (login,upload file, download file etc).

like struts/user build mvc framework, jdbc/hibernate etc.. design patterns like business delegate, dao pattern etc for database part.

or is it fine to write a jsp on form submission invoking a required helper class and directly submitting the required values to the database

You can very well do anything you want. But it is a question whether your boss or colleagues will allow you to or if this is a product or application. Simple MVC is always the best one to incorporate since you can say the application is MVC!!
