I am trying to input data in a JSP page and on clicking "Sumbit" button would like to write the data into a database. Whats the most easiest way to do this. Do I have to follow a servlet approach or can I do it without involving servlets. Can anyone provide a sample code for a JSP input page, and a java class to write it to the database without involving servlets? Really appreciate all the help

1. you use any html form submit data to a servlet or jsp, it is strongly recommended to use servlet to handle data access, but yes, you can do without servlet.

2. in the servlet or jsp page, you use jdbc programming write data into database, jdbc tutorial:
http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/jdbc/basics/

example:
<form method=post action=dbwrite.jsp>
<input type=text name=mydata>
<input type=submit>
</form>
<%@ page import="java.sql.*" %>
<%
  Class.forName( "your.jdbc.driver" );
  Connection con = null;    
  Statement stmt = null;
  try {
    con = DriverManager.getConnection("your-jdbc-url");
    stmt = con.createStatement();
    String queryString  =("insert into mytable values( '" + request.getParameter( "mydata" ) + "' )" );
    stmt.executeUpdate(queryString);
  }
  finally {
    if( stmt != null ) try { stmt.close(); } catch (Exception e) { e.printStackTrace(); }
    if( con != null ) try { con.close(); } catch (Exception e) { e.printStackTrace(); }
  }
%>

Ok...How do I do it with a Servlet approach. My project is like this: There is a welcome page that has two links. One for New Customer and one for Existing Customer. WHen the the user clicks on New, a jsp page opens that has the textfields for the user input and when the user presses the submit button, these values get written into the database. When the user clicks on the Existing link, a jsp opens that has a few textfields for doing searches. The user can enter the last name and press Submit button and the details from the database are printed out. Can anyone provide me a sample of what the JSP and the servlet should look like? Thanks for your help.
