I have designed a web based application using jsp,servlets & database as oracle.Now i want to have a search engine that can access tables in my database and retrieve the records.For example the user may perform search using name,emailid,phone number etc.Can we design it using Servlets,Jsp.
Please suggest how to proceed.
Thanks in advance

- Use JSP to fabricate UI
- Use servlet to manipulate request/response
- Use plain Java classes for DB stuff. You can also go for some mapping tool like JDO/Hibernate

Some recommended readings:
- DAO (Data Access Object)
- VO/TO (Value/Transfer Object)
I agree. Here's the link:
