I have a .jsp file that runs a simple query on a database.  I have no .jsp experience :( - hence why i am asking the experts ;) - flattery is good right....
Anyhow.  I want to add a date rage function to this query.  I would like to have a page preferebly in .jsp that prompts for date start and date end.  I want a submit button to pass these values to the .jsp query page.  How will it look on the form page (daterange.jsp) and how will these values be grabbed on the query.jsp page?  what is more secure session or post if at all the case in this scenario.

In daterange.jsp, you'll create two textbox named say, txtStartDate and txtEndDate with a submit button. The action of the form will refer to query.jsp method for form to be used is GET.

Now in query.jsp file, you can get these values from query string embedding scriptlet to jsp page as

<%
String startDate = request.getParameter("txtStartDate");
String endDate = request.getParameter("txtEndDate");
%>

on the "daterange.jsp" page, create 2 textboxes and submit button within a form tag.
<form method="post" action="query.jsp"> <!--or method=get-->
<input type="text" name="startdate" />
<input type="text" name="enddate" />
<input type="submit"/>
</form>

on query.jsp use request.getParameter to get the values
request.getParameter("startdate");
