I want to design a log in page by using jsp, and mysql. The funcation I want to implement is, when a new user first time log in, they need create an account,
The order is:
1. user need input their email address, then the email address will be varified by a jsp progarm and a db table (On server side, I will create a table which store all authunicated user email address and name)
If successful, that means this user is legiable to create an account. i.e. create their own password.
2. After they input all these information, they need check their email to active their account. Their password will also be stored in the table. If later on, they forget their password, they can retirve it through email.
My question is how to use email to do the authentication, i.e. through checking email to active their account for the first time?
Wish to hear your suggestions about this.
Thank you so much for your help.
