String g=request.getParameter("g");
String h=request.getParameter("h");
String i=request.getParameter("i");

String point=request.getParameter("point");
int next,previous;
int pointer=0;
int count=0;
int maxrecords=5;



Connection myConn=DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:mysql://servername/password/username");
Statement stmt = myConn.createStatement();
String sql="";
// change next=next+1;
sql="select * from tablename where id>="+(next+1);
if(a.length()>0 &&(a!=null))
sql= sql + " and a='"+a+"'";
if(b.length()>0 &&(b!=null)&& (!b.equals("empty")))
sql= sql + " and b='"+b+"'";
if(c.length()>0 &&(c!=null))
sql= sql + " and c='"+c+"'";
if(d.length()>0 &&(d!=null))
sql= sql + " and d>='"+d+"'";
if(e.length()>0 &&(e!=null))
sql= sql + " and e<='"+e+"'";
if(f.length()>0 &&(f!=null))
sql= sql + " and f>='"+f+"'";
if(g.length()>0 &&(g!=null))
sql= sql + " and g<='"+g+"'";
ResultSet rs=stmt.executeQuery(sql);
ResultSetMetaData rm1 = rs.getMetaData();

<TABLE WIDTH="80%" BORDER="1" ALIGN="center">
<Th ALIGN="center" BGCOLOR="#CCFFFF"><B><%=rm1.getColumnLabel(6)%></B></Th>
<Th ALIGN="center" BGCOLOR="#CCFFFF"><B><%=rm1.getColumnLabel(7)%></B></Th>
<Th ALIGN="center" BGCOLOR="#CCFFFF"><B><%=rm1.getColumnLabel(8)%></B></Th>
out.println("<tr><td>"+ rs.getString(rm1.getColumnLabel(6))+ "</td><td>" + rs.getString(rm1.getColumnLabel(7)) + " </td><td>"
+ rs.getString(rm1.getColumnLabel(8)) + " </td></tr>");

//rs1.getString(rm1.getColumnlabel(1)) + " </tr></tr>");
}while((rs.next())&(next % maxrecords !=0));
//while((rs.previous())&(next % maxrecords !=1));

if(previous >1)
out.println("<a href='http://localhost:8080/paginginjsp.jsp?point="+previous+"'> previous</a>    ");
out.println("<a href='http://localhost:8080/paginginjsp.jsp?point="+next+"'> next </a>");

Welcome to the Ranch arvindmpai!
You'll find this forum a great place to seek help on JSP pages, and there aren't many rules you'll have to worry about, but one is that proper names are required. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and change your display name to match it.
I'd also like to suggest that when posting code to the forums, that you use the UBB code tags. That way, the formatting of your code will be preserved.
Also, this very subject, the paging of large datasets, has been discussed a number of times in these forums. You might find some useful hints by searching this and the Servlets forum for information on paging.
