hithere, im some kinda newbie to javaserverpages, now i got some weird problem: i have a field of radio buttons that can vary in their amount, cause they are generated by a db query. the user can modify the selcted values. after he has to click safe, and the
'map' of clicked radio buttons is stored back in the db. as i have no 'for each' etc clauses in jsp i have no clue how to do this the rite way, the thing below just works fine in asp, but some1 could tell me the way with jsp?
if Request.Form.Count > 0 then
for each entry in Request.Form
if not (entry = "x" or entry = "y") then
set db = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
db.Open cc_database
sql = "update languages set spr_inuse = " & Request.Form(entry) & " where lan_seq = " & entry
set rs = db.Execute(sql)
set db=Nothing
set rs=Nothing
if not err.Number=0 then
%><p>error in db: <%=err.Description %></p><%
end if
end if
end if

Eric: Thanks for your question... but
When folks register, the one rule they agree to is "For your user name, use a first name, a space and last name.
Obviously fictitious names, or improperly formatted names may be locked out."
This does not mean that if your formal name is Michael Jingleheimerschmidt that you cannot use "Mike Schmidt". In
fact, one of our prestigeous sherriffs is "Mahalakshmi Annadurai", but you know her as "Maha Anna".
Using an unregistered alias for your first few posts is understandable. You're not quite yet comfortable with this
group. But after a few posts, it's time to register and follow the rules. For some forums, abuse of the name rules
has led to not allowing unregistered accounts. So, you will need to create a registered account that follows the
It is possible that you are horribly paranoid about using your real name on the web. This happens. In that case, feel
free to register using a fictitious name, although this will probably be a disadvantage to you in the future. Use
something like "Al Swensen" or "Rob Cheeny". Do not use cute names like "Justin Case" or "Adam Baum". Do not use
the names of celebrities.
If you are currently using an account that uses an inappropriate alias, please create a new account that follows the
rules. The software we use here is not capable of changing the name on an existing account and we have unlimited
account slots.
I want to maintain a professional exchange on JavaRanch so that corporate america won't feel embarassed to find
employees spending time here.
If a moderator or administrator has directed you to this message and you choose to not follow the rules, there is a
good chance that your improperly registered account could be locked and your unregisted postings deleted. Please
note that your IP is tracked and you might find your IP is blocked.
There are really only two rules you are asked to follow here:
1) Be decent to your fellow ranchers (we really haven't had any trouble with this one)
2) Use an appropriate name (we've had trouble with this one).
I hope that the value of participating on JavaRanch is worth sacrificing a single-name username.

I noticed that your question is about ASPs (?), not JSPs which is the subject of this forum (we don't care for Microsoft web techniques )
