(it is not giving any err) if i dont redirect then the msg is coming but when i redirect it is not coming how and why???

out.print("<script>alert('Record Updated Successfully');</script>");

It looks like you don't have a firm grasp on what code gets executed on the server and which gets executed in the user's browser.

In this case, the redirect happend before any of the scripting code was sent to the browser.

The following article by this forum's esteemed bar-keep should help you.
