My field is in networking/communications and I have basic knowledge of webdesign - enough to be dangerous. A friend referred me to this site and hopefully someone can help.

We currently have some back-end log in pages written in jsp for certain merchants. These pages were written by our software developer of which this project is not in their scope in this phase of devlopment. On one of these pages contains links to certain parts of the site. With that being said, here is my question.

My supervisor has asked me to take on a task of creating a link that pulls login information from a postgreSQL server and uses that information to log into another website. I have the login string for the other site, but my biggest task is to find out how to pull information from the database and insert it into the provided string as a link.

Can this be done?
How?

I a few bucks to play around with if there is anyone to help.

Thanks

Moving to JDBC forum. There are a million web references to simple JDBC usage, which may be enough to get by.

I'd caution strongly against putting this code into the JSP, and instead put it into a servlet, but that may be more than you want to deal with right now.

Welcome to the Ranch

To repeat what Jeanne said: here is that tutorial. There are lots of books and tutorials available elsewhere.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
