few Things I can suggest after looking into your code ...

1. pstatement.setString(2, lname); you have just set lname only even in your query you should pass fname also.
2. try to use normal sql update ,i doubt you can pass dynamic value in where clause in PL/SQL (I guess). try to update data without using where clause ,if you get success
it means you can't pass dynamic value for where clause.

hope my finding help you :)

Don't use java code inside jsp. It's a very old practice. JSP is just the view.

Yes it is old practice to write java code in the JSP

But if you still want to update data .Write the updation block(java code) in separate method in the Java class and then call it from the JSP.

you have to just pass the parameters in the method and rest of work you can do the method , I mean if you have only parameter then pass other one as empty and in the java method you can actually create the query having one where condition.

say
method( param1,param2){

SQL="......"

if(param1 !=""){

SQL =SQL+"fname=" +param1;
}


if(param2 !=""){

SQL =SQL+"lname=" +param1;
}

}

Something like above pseudocode..
