Hi All,

I am trying to develop a quiz application based on MVC architecture using JSP and servlets. I have a frame where left side displays the questions and right side displays the set of buttons(total no of questions). When i click on "2" button, its not overwriting the left pane, instead its appending with the left one and displaying 1,2 questions. When i click on 3rd button, the left pane is not getting overwritten. In my servlets i am using request Dispatcher to forward to Jsp which will display the frame. Can you please hel out here. Below is my code

//Frame displaying left side question and right side buttons


<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

<frame src="questiondisplay.jsp" name="displayquestion"/>
<frame src="questionset.jsp" name="questionset"/>
</frameset>

//Servlet code

// TODO Auto-generated method stub
int btnvalue=Integer.parseInt(request.getParameter("btn"));
String username=(String)request.getSession().getAttribute("username");

try{

Connection conn=db.getConnection();
Statement stmt=conn.createStatement();

ResultSet rset=stmt.executeQuery(query);
