Hello everyone,

I am studying for SCWCD and have been stuck here. I tried the code given on the page 89.The problem is when I click on a particular color and hit submit, the jsp does not get displayed. Instead a blank screen is displayed. I have kept the result.jsp in Coffee-v1/jsp/result.jsp in the TomCat directory.
Here is the servlet. I have used "Coffee" instead of "Beer"
public class CoffeeSelect extends HttpServlet {


protected void doPost(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException, IOException {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub

String color = request.getParameter("color");
CoffeeExpert ce = new CoffeeExpert();
List brands = ce.getBrands(color);


/*response.setContentType("text/html");
PrintWriter out = response.getWriter();
// out.println("<h1 align=center>Coffee Selection Advice</h1>");
out.println("<br>got Color "+color);*/



request.setAttribute("styles", brands);
System.out.println("IN DO POST!!");
RequestDispatcher view = request.getRequestDispatcher("jsp/result.jsp");
System.out.println("IN DO POST***");
response.sendRedirect("jsp/result.jsp");
//view.forward(request, response);

/*Iterator it = brands.iterator();
while(it.hasNext())
{
out.print("<br> try: "+it.next());
}*/



}



}

The result.jsp

<%@ page import="java.util.*"%>
<html>
<body>


<%
List styles = (List)request.getAttribute("styles");
Iterator it = styles.iterator();
while(it.hasNext())
{
out.print("<br>try: "+it.next());
}
%>

</body>
</html>

Can anyone please tell me what is missing in my code??

I have got the answer. Apparently, I had placed servlet-api.jar in the WEB-INF/lib folder which the container could not read.

Thank You

Look no problem if the jar files are added in the WEB-INF/lib directory, they must be addedd in the class path that is more important.Also in your program you commented out the view.forward(req,res) thats y it wasn't getting forwarded.

The container could not read the servlet class.I dont know why it could not read it.I had kept servlet-api.jar and jsp-api.jar in the WEB-INF/lib directory.

I was just trying whether the page could be forward using other methods so that explains why I commented forward() method.

Thank You

if the container is not able to read your servlet class then you might not have done the proper servlet mapping in your web.xml or you might not have placed your .class file in WEB-INF/classes..... check your url-pattern properly also if you could not run the whole application try to execute your servlet first, then proceed step by step by adding requestDispatcher, adding html file then bean etc ....

It was able to read my servlet. It was probably of a jar conflict since servlet-api is placed in common/lib and I tried to place it in WEB-INF/lib directory of my webApp. I am using eclipse IDE so I just added the servlet-api.jar in my project in eclipse.
