Use javascript to check whether the new password and confirm password are matching. Then after submiting the form , in action check the database if the old password is corrct or not . If it is incorrect show error message.

You can check the new password and the confirm password with this javascript function:
where the pass and newpass are the names of the textfields for example:
<input type="password" name="pass" value="">
<input type="password" name="newpass" value="">
Remember to put these inside a form and call the validate function like this:
<form name="mainform"  action="/changePass.do" target="blank" method="post" onSubmit="validate();">

In order to check the old password you need to call your action and then get the text field value. Another approach is with Ajax if you dont want to reload the entire page, here is a short tutorial:

function validate() {
    pass=mainform.pass.value;
    newpass=mainform.newpass.value;
    if (pass!=newpass) {
        alert('the new pass doesn't match with the confirm');
        event.returnValue=false;
    }
}
