hey, I'm having a problem passing this data to a new JSP.. maybe you guys can help me out. here is thesection of code that seeems to be troubling me...




this will display a table with a list of names from top to bottom.... then it has an "edit" button in the cell next to it.. great.. but what I want to happen is when you click the "edit" button it should go to a new .jsp page that will display the name, and display the details of the name, I think that requires a statement like select * from Student where Stud_Name = t2...

but how do I send the data off to a new .jsp file? ? Im having trouble getting that to happen... thanks

You need to use some hidden input fields in your current page, and then in your new page you just do request.getParameter("param_name").

Put the SELECT * FROM ... query in the second page.

Page 1 gets the list of names (and possibly your primary key as a hidden field)
Page 2 gets the detail for the student selected in page 1.
 
it's a teeny, tiny, wafer thin ad:
