I was trying to insert a row in the database using struts. Problem is that, null values are being inserted in the database. For some reason, the values which i entered in the form are not coming up in the database. These are the code i have written.

<%@ page language="java" contentType="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1"

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
<title>Insert title here</title>
<form action = "">
ProductId: <input type ="text" name = "ProductId"><br>
ProductName:<input type ="text" name ="ProductName"><br>
ProductPrice:<input type ="text" name="ProductPrice"><br>
ProductDescription:<input type ="text" name ="ProductDescription"><br>
<input type ="submit" value = "Register">
