Hi friend, here is the funny question. I have 2 variable, password and conpass, I need to make sure these 2 variable is the same value before I can process. What I have done is like below:

a.jsp
=====
<html>
<head>
...............
...............
...............

 <%
   String username = request.getParameter("username");
   String password = request.getParameter("password");
   String conpass = request.getParameter("conpass");
   
   out.println(password);
   out.println(conpass);
   
  if (password == conpass) {

           wasusr.connect();
        wasusr.insert(username,password,conpass);
        out.println("Registration Completed !!");
   } else {
        out.println("Make Sure it;s the same!!");
   }
             
  %>

When I out print the variable, it's shown both variable is the same but the statement, "Make Sure it's the same" prompt out also.

Any ideas??

I have odne some comparison before for "String", proven it's working for String also .
Please help.

== tests if they are the same object.
To test string equality use the equals() method:

if (password.equals(conpass)) {

objects, so sorry to recall this again.

My below code doesn't performt the comparison purpose?
Why?

***************
String username=request.getParameter("username");
String password=request.getParameter("password");

wasusr.connect();
ResultSet rs = wasusr.checkusr(username);

  if (rs.next()) {
     String checkpass = rs.getString("WA1002");
     out.println(username);
     out.println(password);
     out.println(checkpass);
     
     if (checkpass.equals(password)) {
 out.println("Compare OK!");
}
}

it's doesn't print out the "Compare OK!", not event perform the compare statemet (IF). Further more, WA1002, is a CHAR in database.....

pleaseeeee

the i'd say they aren't equal.
Print the value of the two strings to check. Maybe there are trailing spaces on one.

if (rs.next()) {
    String checkpass = rs.getString("WA1002");
    out.println(username);
    out.println(password);
    out.println(checkpass);

this statement already printed out and it's shown the value is the same.
