And I think answer to this question should be yes
but when I am using it and calling the update function from my jsp
it do not seem to work
As far as I think this syntax is correct
void update()
{
PreparedStatement pstmt = con.prepareStatement("delete from table where colname= ?");
pstmt.clearParameters();
pstmt.setString(value_from_jsp);
pstmt.executeUpdate();
con.commit();
}
Correct me anyone if I am wrong?

Hi Gaurav..
The Syntax is wrong...
here
pstmt.setString(value_from_jsp);
change it to
pstmt.setString(1,value_from_jsp);
bye
