you have many options.
you can write the whole database code in the same jsp page, or use a form to submit it to a servlet which will handle it or use a bean that will act as the link to the database.
in all options u get the parameters in the textfields using the
request.getParameter(name of field);
then u can whatever u wish with it.

when u use the <input type='file'> the actual file gets submitted not just the path in the textbox. Do refer to multipart mimetypes(O'Reiley has one that u can download for free).
Also after you have uploaded the image from the clients computer to your webserver u need to save it in the database. if u are using oracle there are specific datatypes u can declare to store images. But my suggestion is to write the image into the webservers hard drive and store the path in the database.
regards
syd

You have to use one of the packages that are available out there. It's not that straight forward. O'reilley has one out there, as mentioned previously. You can search this forum or www.google.com for some links.
