1. Given the size, the form should use POST - GET might run into limits on URL length.
2. Create names for the fields that identify the field in terms convenient for your database saving operation
3. Submit the form to a servlet for extracting/verifying/etc the data - NOT to a JSP, JSP should only be used for HTML creation. See numerous discussions in this forum on the role of servlets and JSP
