I have a web page that forwards listbox selected values to my servlet that receives it in a String Array. How would I insert this into a dbase? Is there some datatype in mysql that can help me with this? or should I format all the values into one String and then insert it normally?

That doesn't make much sense to me. If the page is being forwarded to a servlet, it will not yet have had a chance to be displayed in the browser, and so how would the selection be made?

Sorry, I mean after the user hits the submit button the values are extracted in a servlet

OK, so it seems that from there you are confused as to how to save the values into a DB. So I've moved this post to a more approriate forum for such as discussion.

Tontang,
Do you have a database already set up? If so, what does the schema/ddl/table structure look like?

If not and you get to design it, consider storing each listbox value in a separate row.
 
Are we home yet? Wait, did we forget the tiny ad?
