I've the below code in my servlet for updating database.
and the below for sending E-Mail
these servlets are working fine when i use them separately, but when i use them combined by putting the first one in post and the second one in get methods it is giving me output as "Err"(the one i defined for updating the data).
could you please help me how do i get these things work.
The <form> element in your HTML sends a request to the server. That's "a" request -- one single request. This request should be directed to a servlet which validates and handles the form parameters, not to a JSP.
If the <form> element has type="post" then the doPost() method of the servlet will be called, and if it has type="get" then the doGet() method will be called. Your design should choose the type parameter appropriately.
So that means that the servlet which the <form> element requests should have code in either doPost() or doGet() to handle the request, but not in both of them.
