Hello Rancher's ,

I am facing an invalid cursor state error when i enter Login Id and Password which is not in database

means in the below code ... else loop is not working ..... If the login id and password is correct then it is working fine (if loop is working fine).

import java.io.*;
//import java.util.*;
import javax.servlet.*;
import javax.servlet.http.*;
import java.sql.*;

public class Reg1LoginServlet extends HttpServlet

//Hashtable users = new Hashtable();

public void doGet(HttpServletRequest req, HttpServletResponse res) throws ServletException, IOException
doPost(req, res);

public void doPost(HttpServletRequest req, HttpServletResponse res) throws ServletException, IOException


PrintWriter out=res.getWriter();
String Login=req.getParameter("member_login");
String Password=req.getParameter("member_password");
Connection con = null;
ResultSet rs = null;
PreparedStatement stmt = null;

try {

con=DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc dbc:RohitDB1");
PreparedStatement stat=con.prepareStatement("select * from RegInfo where Login=? and Password=?");

if ( Login != null && Password != null && rs!= null)
req.setAttribute("Login", rs.getString("Login"));
req.setAttribute("Password", rs.getString("Password"));
req.setAttribute("First_name", rs.getString("First_name"));
req.setAttribute("Last_name", rs.getString("Last_name"));
req.setAttribute("Email", rs.getString("Email"));
req.setAttribute("Country", rs.getString("Country"));
req.setAttribute("City", rs.getString("City"));
req.setAttribute("Zip", rs.getString("Zip"));
req.setAttribute("Address", rs.getString("Address"));
req.setAttribute("Phone", rs.getString("Phone"));

ServletContext ct = getServletContext();
RequestDispatcher rd = ct.getRequestDispatcher("/LoginInfo.jsp");
rd.forward(req, res);

out.println("<h4><div align ='center'>Login Details Entered By You Are Not Correct, Please Try Again</h4></div>");
RequestDispatcher rd = req.getRequestDispatcher("/RND/Reg1Login.jsp");
rd.include(req, res);

Not that this has anythingto do with servlets per-se, but yes that will happen. If you check the javadoc for the ResultSet class, you'll see that the next() method returns a boolean to indicate if the new current row is valid or not. You are just ignoring that, and going on to read data irrespective.

try something like the following:

I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
