You'll need to be more specific.

Your HTML page is sitting on the client in a browser. Where is the Java method you want to call? In an applet? On the server? Somewhere else?

Maybe you should read some tutorial about servlets and jsp, because it would be too long to explain here.

So, you want to obtain user input, eh?

I put together a simple little multimedia tutorial, along with sample code, that shows you how to do just that:

Obtaining User Input with an HTML Form, a Servlet and a JSP

The key is your form:

<FORM method="post" action="NumberGuesserServlet">
<INPUT type="text" name="guess" size="10">
<INPUT type="submit"
name="submit" value="SUBMIT"></FORM>

And your Servlet/JSP obtaining data from the form:

public class NumberGuesserServlet extends HttpServlet implements Servlet {

protected void doPost(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException, IOException {

String magicNumber = System.currentTimeMillis() % 9 + 1 +"";
String guess = request.getParameter("guess");
if (guess.equals(magicNumber)){
response.getWriter().print("Correct! The magic number was: " + magicNumber);
}
else {
response.getWriter().print("Sorry, the magic number was: "+ magicNumber);
}
}

}


Enjoy the Tutorial!

Thanks alot Cameron. The interactive tutorial was very helpful. But there is still a small minor problem because we are using javabean as it is easier for a beginner like me. sorry about that. so just want to ask whether is the method use between servlets and javabean? thanks alot





i want to call the setData because after i have get the data from the input box from bean. i use the javabean to set and get it. after that i want to call the java method to store it..
