Hi, im using the below commands to set a name a user has entered in a jsp bean. Id like to amend this so the the users id is set instead.
<jsp:useBean id="AccessV" scope="session" class="classfiles.AccessVals"/>
<% AccessV.setName(request.getParameter("strUserName")); %>  

Ive been trying this:
string name = request.getParameter("strUserName");
<% AccessV.setName(select idnum from users where name like 'name'); %>  

That does'nt work although.

Thanks

I tried that but got this error:

Generated servlet error:

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Ive tried that as well but it just outputs all my insert.jsp source code.

This is insert.jsp:

<%@ page import="java.sql.*" %>
<%@ page import="java.util.*" %>
<%@ page import="classfiles.*" %>

<jsp:useBean id="AccessV" scope="session" class="classfiles.AccessVals"/>
<%
 String name = request.getParameter("strUserName");
 AccessV.setName("select idnum from users where name like '" + name + "'");
%>
 

 try {
 
   String userName = request.getParameter("strUserName");
   String pass = request.getParameter("password");
   if (userName != null)
   out.print("User Name: " +userName);
 
  String inServer = "localhost";
  String inDBName = "test";
  String DATABASE_URL = "jdbc:mysql://" + inServer + ":3306/" + inDBName;
 
  Class.forName("com.mysql.jdbc.Driver").newInstance();
  Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection(DATABASE_URL, "username", "password");
  Statement stmt = con.createStatement();
   
 ResultSet rs1 = stmt.executeQuery("select password from userdesc where password like \""+pass+"\" and name like \""+name+"\"");
  String passwordtocompare = "";
  if (rs1.next())
  {
 
         passwordtocompare = rs1.getString(1);
         out.print("\nCorrect password");
         response.sendRedirect("main.jsp?strUserName="+userName+"+password="+pass+"");
         Object id = getServletConfig().getServletContext().getAttribute("someid");
       boolean loggedIn = (id != null);
  }
  else {
     out.print("\nIncorrect username / password");
     response.sendRedirect("reelogin.jsp");
   }
 
//   out.print("\nPassword:" +passwordtocompare);
 //if (passwordtocompare.equals(password)){

//  out.print("\nCorrect password");
//  }
  /*else {
   out.print("\nIncorrect password");
   }*/
}
      catch (ClassNotFoundException cnfe) {
        out.println(cnfe.toString());
      }
      catch (SQLException sqle) {
        out.println(sqle.toString());
    }
%>

you have to edit AccessV, in particular the setName function so that it runs the query and returns whatever value it is you are looking for

How can I do this, this is my bean that contains the setName method

package classfiles;

public class AccessVals {
  private String name;
  public AccessVals() {
    name = "";
  }
  public String getName() {
    return name;
  }
 
  public void setName(String x) {
    name = x;
  }
}

public void setName(String x) {
  Class.forName("com.mysql.jdbc.Driver").newInstance();
  Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection(DATABASE_URL, "username", "password");
  Statement stmt = con.createStatement();
   
 ResultSet rs1 = stmt.executeQuery("select idnum from users where name like '" + x + "' );
 if (rs.next()) {
    name = rs1.getString("idnum");
 }
 rs.close();
 stmt.close();
 con.close();
}

then call setName like this:

<%
 String name = request.getParameter("strUserName");
 AccessV.setName(name);
%>

I amedned as you said but its still causing this error: <<Ive fixed that but its now just outputting :select idnum from users where name like 'adrian_eire' on the page it links to

This is the jsp along with the bean (i know its skimply coded but it will do for now)
<%
 String name = request.getParameter("strUserName");
 AccessV.setName(name);
%>

package classfiles;

import java.sql.*;
import java.util.*;
public class AccessVals {
  private String name;
  public AccessVals() {
    name = "";
  }
  public String getName() {
    return name;
  }
 
  public void setName(String x) {
        try{
          String inServer = "localhost";
  String inDBName = "test";
  String DATABASE_URL = "jdbc:mysql://" + inServer + ":3306/" + inDBName;
 
  Class.forName("com.mysql.jdbc.Driver").newInstance();
  Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection(DATABASE_URL, "username", "password");
  Statement stmt = con.createStatement();
   
 ResultSet rs1 = stmt.executeQuery("select idnum from users where name like '" + x + "'" );
 if (rs1.next()) {
    name = rs1.getString("idnum");
 }
 rs1.close();
 stmt.close();
 con.close();
}
catch(ClassNotFoundException e){
                  
            }
catch(InstantiationException ee){
                  
            }
catch(IllegalAccessException eee){
                  
            }
catch(SQLException eeee){
                  
            }
 
}
  //public void setName(String x) {
    //name = x;
 // }
}
