Hai All

Iam new to Servlets and JSP's. I need an application that accepts username and password from browser and place the user in session, so that the user can be checked for session. Please anyone provide code for this application.

At JavaRanch, we don't just provide code.
We prefer to help people learn how to code these things themselves.

What have you got so far?
What part has you confused?

You have to use Session Tracking in servlets. Session Tracking can be established using any one of the followings:
1. Cookies
2. URL rewriting and
3. Hidden Form Fields

Please go through above topics you will find your answer.

Create a session and store the username in the session.

You can see the javadoc for HTTPSession , you will find methods to set attribute in session.Check the javadoc for HTTPServletRequest for methods which will create HTTPSession.

Tip before getting further : we usually use "equals" to compare strings.
