Yes I'm a newbie.. I have a parameter:
String docID = request.getHeader("docID");
This will be a 3 or 4 digit number.
Ithen want to take this number and :
1. reverse it (1234 becomes 4321)
2. get a random number between 1- 2
3. Add it to reversed number (4323)
4. multiple by 2 (8646)
5. get another random digits based on first random number (if first number was a 1 then I need one more random number, if the first random number was a 2 then I need two random numbers) for example if the first random number was a 2 then any value between 10 - 99 would be fine if the first random number was a 1 then any value between 0-9 would be acceptable.
6. Append first random number to front of existing number
7. append second random number(s) to end of existing number.

Examples:docID = 321
1. 123
2. random number 2
3. 1232
4. 2464
5. second random number 69 (2 digits because first random number was a 2)  
6.22464
7.2246469

You can start getting right the Parameter using:

Strind docID = request.getParameter("docID")

instead of

String docID = request.getHeader("docID");
 
The rest it shouldn't be hard to get with a Java Book, you have your steps well defined, if you know how to do it in other language just look for the commands in Java.

I don't think is good neither for you or us to do the job for you, it won't really help.

I just thoght of this last night.. so i'm going to start writting code today (time permitting). I don't see how you can say it has nothing to do with Java or JSP. No this is not homework. I'm working on finding a solution for a problem at work and this will be part of my solution. As I said I'm new to JAVA. I have done limited JSP. The problem is I don't know what to look up when I'm looking at solving a particular step. I know what I want to do I just don't know what the methods etc. are called in JAVA.

Alright here is a start for you..

String start = request.getParameter("docID");
start =reverseIt(start);
int docID=Interger.parseInt(start.trim());
int rand=new random().nextInt(3);// this might give a zero as a result back but we will worry abt that later
docID+=rand;
docID+=docID=docID*2;
if(rand==1)
//stringify the numbers and apppend them......

take it from here and I will see you after a meeting.....
