I have seperate checkboxes in a jsp page. after the user selects a couple of chec boxes, I would like to pass the information to the database .

How would I check which checkboxes where selected or not?

I checked out the tutorial ,, but somehow i am not able to implement it. Can somebody help me out please.

I am populating a table from an arraylist and one of the columns is plain checkboxes( which do not have any values in the d/b).

I am not sure how to check if the user selected the checkbox. ( user can check more than one checkbox).

This can be done through Javascript. if your check box is checked, make the value As 'Y' , If it is not checked make the value of the check box as 'N', when you submit the form. The same values will get updated to the database. while you are retrieving from the database you have to check for 'Y' to check the check box.
