using int value returned by a javabean

well, i'm new to jsp & javabean development and been having some what i consider as should be simple problems.

i''ve created a javabean that checks and returns an integer value of what the user did.  it checks for user's id & password and depending on the user's correct info level, i'm returning a number.  so 0 = no match, 1 = user id match, 2 = user id match but password wrong, 3 = all match.

in my jsp, i'm just trying to use the value that's returned.

well, i originally tested the bean just passing back true or false.  so if the user's id matched, return true.  that worked fine.  now i''ve changed everything to use these int and it just doesn't seem to do anything but bomb.  i tried to use Integer.parseInt but didn't do anything.

can you help me out?

as i'm sure it's usually the case here, i really need this working asap.

some code:

in javabean:
        public int existsUser (String strEmail, String strPassword) {
           
            String url = "jdbcdriver";
            Connection con;
            Statement stmt;
            String query = "select UserID, Password from Authorization where Email = '" + strEmail + "'";
                // 0= user does not exist, 1 = user exists but did not match password,
                //2 = user exists, but password wrong, 3 = all matched & good
                int intHaveRS = 0;
                String strUID = "";
                String strPass = "";
      
            try {
                  Class.forName("com.mysql.jdbc.Driver");
      
            } catch(java.lang.ClassNotFoundException e) {
                  System.err.print("ClassNotFoundException: ");
                  System.err.println(e.getMessage());
                  return 0;
            }

            try {
                  con = DriverManager.getConnection(url, "iars_bears", "iars_bears");
      
                  stmt = con.createStatement();
      
                  ResultSet rs = stmt.executeQuery(query);
      
                  if (rs.next()) {
                        strUID = rs.getString("UserID");
                                strPass = rs.getString("Password");
                                intHaveRS = 1;
                                if (strPassword.equals(strPass)) {
                                    intHaveRS = 3;
                                } else {
                                    intHaveRS = 2;
                                }
                  } else {
                        setUID(null);
                                intHaveRS = 0;
                  }
      
                  stmt.close();
                  con.close();
      
            } catch(SQLException ex) {
                  System.err.println("SQLException: " + ex.getMessage());
                  return 0;
            }

            return intHaveRS;
           
        }

and jsp:
<%@page import="java.lang.*, java.io.*" %>
<jsp:useBean id="Authorization" class="msk.Authorization" />
<%
int iUExist=0;

if (request.getParameter("btnSubmit") != null)  {
    iUExist = Authorization.existsUser((request.getParameter("txtEmail")),(request.getParameter("txtPassword")));
    if (iUExist > 0) {
        out.print("this user exists! " + iUExist);
    } else {
        out.print("this user DOES NOT exists!");
    }
}

%>

<p>Welcome!</p>
<form name="frmAdmLogin" method="post" action="">
  <p>user email
    <input type="text" name="txtEmail">
  </p>
  <p>user password

you have to restart... it's probably using your old bean which is why when you try to assign the int value it bombs... existsUser is probably still returning a boolean.

to avoid the obvious, you've re-compiled your bean and restarted your server right?

i've recompiled my bean but it's a remote server and i can't restart.  i did reload my class tho.

mskim100Author Commented:
so as far as you can see, i should be able to use my int that's returned from my bean?  well, i'll have to ask someone to restart then.  i'll let you know what happens when i get it restarted.
