Well this is not a jsp/servlet type issue. I am assuming you are trying to get data from an Oracle database.
java.sql.SQLException: ORA-00923: FROM keyword not found where expected

Well, without seeing the actual SQL code, I will guess that your SQL SELECT statement is missing the FROM keyword. And the way to solve it is to break out the old SQL syntax manual. If you don't have one there are alot of free beginner tutorials on the internet.
I hope this helps.

Moving to the JDBC forum.
As cj pointed out, I'm not sure anyone is going to be able to help you without the SQL statement that's causing the problem.

Check your actual SQL statement and make sure there is a space between the 'FROM' declaration and whatever the query is before it. Make sure you also do not have a comma before it.
Examples -
SELECT column_name FROM table_name WHERE column_name = ? // CORRECT!!!
SELECT column_nameFROM table_name WHERE column_name = ? // BAD!!!
SELECT column_name, FROM table_name WHERE column_name = ? // BAD!!!
This is especially important if you are using a StringBuffer or String concantonation(sp?) to build the SQL statement. It's fairly typical to be off on the spacing or inserting a trailing comma before 'FROM' is declared. Also, you need to use it in the same place as I specified.
