During the registration you create a random activation key that you save somewhere (e.g. database). Your activation controller (the one that is called when the user clicks the link) search in the database for this activation key and if it's found mark the user with a flag as 'activated'. If it's not found (or the activation-flag is already set), show an error message.
yes.. In email , i am sending this link "http://localhost:8080/prototype5JTA/faces/activate.jsp?activate=1&acid=70" . so when user click this link in email. i want get that activate id and cid. if i can get those in to jsf manage bean i can update database. any suggestions ?
Thanks.. But when user click email link in email from server side i have to update database. so for that i have to get parameter to java class or implement method when user click url in mail.
? so I don't want get url parameters in jsp page. i want get update database when user click url in email. any suggestion
There's no way to connect to a DB from a link embedded in an email; it will have to go through server processing of some kind via HTTP. If you don't want JSP, fine - use a servlet (better anyway), or PHP, or ASP.Net, or whatever other server-side technology you prefer.
