open document using if statement

I tried to attach files to my database for me to be able to retrieve those documents on the web using an id number. I used binary objects but it didn't work.
Now I am using a method to read the id from the web then open the document. I think it can work but I don't know how.
On the jsp page I have :
Then on the other hand :
try {
Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc dbc:AcessCore");
publicationNumber = request.getParameter("id");

??? how do I open a specfic document when you click on the link?

else if(publicationNumber=="NRR1")
href="C://hello.doc"; doesn't work
catch (
ClassNotFoundException e1) { }
catch (SQLException e2) { }
I have like 100 publications and I have to do this one by one. Can someone tell me how to do that? opening the document as a new window.
Any help will be so much appreciated.

Intersting. This post has nothing to do with Linux. I mean, you aren't even on a Linux machine. I know this because of the line
href="C://hello.doc"; doesn't work

Oh well, moving to JSP.

Actually, since this is a dupe of a question already asked in this forum, I'm closing this topic.
orelia, please do not cross-post the same question in multiple fourms.
