i have a little local web site with jsp /servlet, i created a bean...... and a dao... what is the best way to use the dao?
in the servet take the jsp parameter, populate the bean and send the bean to dao?

I think this kind of thing is typical

The POJO (Plain Old Java Object) is there to move "business logic" out of the servlet and JSP.

Some interesting guidelines: servlet is all Java, uses request & response, no HTML. JSP is all HTML & tags, no Java. POJO is all Java, no HTML, no HTTP* imports.

Editing: I just spotted that you were talking about a bean to hold the parameters that came in on the request. That's perfectly cool, too. I made mine hold the results we got back from the database on a query so we could have several beans involved in this thing.

Does that makes sense?

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
