Working With Database Application in JSP

In this article, I am going to develop a database application with JSP. To develop that type of application, first we design a database and then develop a JSP application using NetBeans IDE. For this application we use the following steps.

Step 1: Create a new database

At first we click on the blank database option and click on create.

Step 8: Select Framework

There is no need to select any framework for this application; just click on the finish button.


Step 9: Create JSP file

We create one JSP (index.jsp) file for this application.

<% Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver"); %>

               <H1>Action in a Database Table </H1>
               <FORM NAME="form1" ACTION="index.jsp" METHOD="POST">
                    int current = 1;
                    if(request.getParameter("hidden") != null) {
                    current = Integer.parseInt(request.getParameter("hidden"));
                    Connection connection = DriverManager.getConnection(
                    Statement statement = connection.createStatement(
                    ResultSet resultset =
                    statement.executeQuery("select * from table1");
                    if(current < 1){
                       current = 1;
                    int rows = resultset.getRow();
                    if(current <= rows){
                <TABLE BORDER="1">
                         <TD> <%= resultset.getString(1) %> </TD>
                         <TD> <%= resultset.getString(2) %> </TD>
                         <TD> <%= resultset.getString(3) %> </TD>
                         <TD> <%= resultset.getString(4) %> </TD>
                         <TD> <%= resultset.getString(5) %> </TD>
                 <INPUT TYPE="HIDDEN" NAME="hidden" VALUE="<%= current %>">
                 <INPUT TYPE="BUTTON" VALUE="Next Data" ONCLICK="moveNext()">
                 <INPUT TYPE="BUTTON" VALUE="Previous Data" ONCLICK="movePrevious()">
          <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
                function moveNext()
                 var counter = 0
                 counter = parseInt(document.form1.hidden.value) + 1
                 document.form1.hidden.value = counter
                  function movePrevious()
                  var counter = 0
                  counter = parseInt(document.form1.hidden.value) - 1
                  document.form1.hidden.value = counter
               // -->

Step 10: Compile and Run the application

Now we compile the application and then run it on the server and find the following output.




Index.jsp for next data


Index.jsp for previous data
