Select results from Database

Hopefully this is a simple question.  I’m working on a JSP page that will search a database and return the results based on the search.  After the results have been returned, I need to allow the user to select one of the results and then be directed to the appropriate page based on that selection.  I’ve been able to retrieve the resultSet and create a radio button beside each one, however I’m not sure how to pass the information of the result to the next page.  Please see the example code I’ve provided.  What do I need to change here?  Thanks

while ( {
         String project = rs.getString(1);
         String testname = rs.getString(2);
         String testid = rs.getString(3);
         String description = rs.getString(4);

       <table border ="0" cellspacing="1" cellpadding = "1">
<input type = "radio"
name = "result"
value = testname
onClick="submit()" ><h1>Project Name: <%=project%>     , TestName:         <%=testname%> , Description: <%=description%></h1> <BR></input>

 You can use a form instead of onClick submittion, and you add a boton for submit, and also in the same cicle of the result set you can create this form, here's my code suggestion:

   <!-- in this form I'm assuming that you have a javascript function name submit() -->
  <form name="yourForm" method="POST" action="javascript:submit()">
     <table border ="0" cellspacing="1" cellpadding = "1">
     <% while ( {
            String project = rs.getString(1);
            String testname = rs.getString(2);
            String testid = rs.getString(3);
            String description = rs.getString(4);
        <input type = "radio" name = "result" value = testname>
           <h1>Project Name: <%=project%>     , TestName:         <%=testname%> , Description:
           <%=description%></h1> <BR></input>
     <% } // while %>
        <input type="submit" name="Go" value="go" >             

   I think this is a clearly way to do this, hope this help :)

On the next jsp page when I do request.getParameter( "result" )) it just returns testname as opposed to the value of testname.
