How to add columns dynamically through UI?..

I am just doing simple exercises on Servlets and JSP's.

I have a doubt:

Created One table called "Product" and added few columns like "ID, Name etc"..

Now i want to add new columns through UI Itself, can we achieve tat?..

For ex: create a page called "Add column" , In that we have to provide

Column Name(Price) and Data type(Integer) for the new column ..

Once click on create button, It should create a new column in our existing "Product" table..

Hi Hariharan,

Can you avoid posting duplicate posts, please? I'll lock this one - the other is in a more appropriate forum, I think.

I agree. Here's the link:
