JSP email submit form ..

Hi there,

I have a database set up with an ip, database name, user and password. The table then has a field for website id, email and a timestamp.

The question is .. what is the easiest way to connect and post an entry to this database checking if the email already exists ?

The websiteid can be hardcoded but obviously the email needs to be posted from the form to another page and then put in a sting and a timestamp needs to be added.

thanks for your time.

Look at:


For your specific application you'll use: //Get SQL Statement.
//Replace TableName to your table's name.
java.sql.ResultSet rs=connection.createStatement().executeQuery("select count(*) AS cnt from $TableName where email = 'emailAddressFromForm' ");

int count = 0;
 //For each row, get the first column and print it out
    count = rs.getInt("cnt");
if( count==0 ){
    connection.createStatement().executeUpdate("INSERT INTO $TableName(websiteID,email) VALUES('$id', '$emailAddress') ");
