If you're going to program for the web, you'll need to get a basic understanding of HTTP and how HTTP Forms work. This is the same whether you're using Servlets, JSP, PHP, ASP, Perl, DOT_NET, etc...

This chapter covers them.

If you're going to write servlets, I highly recommend reading the whole book - as well as the 2nd edition "More Servlets and Java Server Pages".

It is a trivial question. You can use the following methods to retrieve info from your HTML file.

<request object>.getParameter(<Parameter name> ;

Hi Anamika,

I guess u r trying to develop shopping cart sort of application.
Anyways the problem is quite simple..
Just use the getParameter() method of the HttpServletRequest object and access the parameter names..
Then store the corresponding rows into the database.
If u could send the source code of the program...I will try to solve your problem..
