To me, that code seems like inserting a record into the database. By the way, instead of asking whether the code is right or wrong. Have you tried to run it and see it's correct?

Two best practices:
1) Use a PreparedStatement (with a question mark) rather than string appending the option in. This presents SQL injection attacks where someone can execute arbitrary SQL code.
2) Keep SQL code out of a JSP. It really should be in a Java class (called from a servlet not a JSP.)

As for right and wrong, it depends what you want the code to do.
