your class should return something back to the servlet indicating success or failure. Based on that flag, the servlet could either forward to an appropriate jsp or use the response writer to output required html.
hope this helps

import javax.sql.*;
import javax.servlet.*;
import javax.naming.*;
import javax.servlet.http.*;
public class insertProject extends HttpServlet
public void doPost (HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response)throws ServletException,IOException
String ProjectName = request.getParameter("pname");
String Description = request.getParameter("description");
String OrgName = request.getParameter("orgname");
String ArchitectId = request.getParameter("architectid");
String SystemName = request.getParameter("systemname");
String BusinessUnit = request.getParameter("businessunit");
ProjectDatabase pd=new ProjectDatabase();

/* i can display the information here*/
this is the method in my Projectdatabase class:
/* shall i declare a boolean variable and after my insert query intilize it as true and then return that to the servlet, then how i will grab the value in my servlet*/ plz help
public void createProject( String ProjectName,String Description,String OrgName,String ArchitectId,String SystemName,String BusinessUnit )

Context context = new InitialContext();
DataSource ds = (DataSource) context.lookup( "itarchutil-datasource" );
Connection con = ds.getConnection();
/* i got my insert query here */


catch (Exception e)
System.out.println("Error:" + e);
