Hi guys,

I tried the following code below. I had setup Oracle Database. I created a sample login screen just to test how sendRedirect and RequestDispatch works. I have the following,

The code inside my myServler class,

Now, I want my code to behave like this, when the user name and password = xxx and yyy respectively, then I shud be redirected to admin.jsp page rather than landing in welcome.jsp as above. But when I tried this, everytime I land up in welcome.jsp instead of going to admin.jsp when xxx and yyy are my request parameters. Can anyone help me with this please??

Thanks in advance.

When you use

instead of the "String == String" construction it should work...

This is the problematic code. "==" compares references not contents of String, however String class overrides equals() method to provide the comparison functionality of contents.

Hope it helps
