better is:

PreparedStatement stmt = conn.prepareStatement( "delete FROM userskills where username=? and skill=?" ) ;
stmt.setString( 1, vol.getUsername() ) ;
stmt.setString( 2, request.getParameter( "id" ) ) ;
stmt.executeUpdate() ;

(don't forget to close your statement)

This way, you can't have problems with "SQL injection"
