I have this code where my callid is a hyper link ..... to another jsp ..... the values of the callid comes from the database .... like calls.getInt("callid)"; ...................
Now my quest is that suppose there are 5 callid ... like 1 2 3 4 5 ... when i click on the 5th callid ... i want the hyperlink to pass the value 5 to another jsp ... where i'll be executing a query based on the 5th callid .... ...
So i have 2 questions:
1. How do i pass the dynamic value through hyper link ...
2. How do i retreive that value in another Jsp.
Please help me out on this one...!!!
Currently my code for the callid looks like this:
<td width="8%"><a href="somepage.jsp"><%=calls.getInt("callid")%></a></font>

In the first JSP use
<td width="8%"><a href="somepage.jsp?id=<%=calls.getInt("callid")%>"><%=calls.getInt("callid")%></a></font>
this should give you
<a href="http://someserver/somepage.jsp?id=5>5</a>
then in somepage.jsp use
<% request.getParamater("id"); %>

Welcome to the Ranch Mehak!
As you have seen, you'll find this forum a great place to seek help on JSP pages, and there aren't many rules you'll have to worry about, but one is that proper names are required. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and change your display name to match it.
