Welcome to JavaRanch!

Now that you've told us what you are wanting to accomplish, what do you need help with? You didn't really ask a question.

Thanks.

Dear Nichole and Marco ,
First welcome to JavaRanch. beerchug:
MVC is the design pattern that you can follow in order to write the code for JSP. You can get tons of data for MVC on net. That pattern will clarify your doubts like where to write which code.
Regards
Samir

thank you all for the reply. My question is how to create the button for an action to retrieve input in textbox. Maybe i need a reference book or link also.
I am really rushed by the deadline and i am getting frustated.

Thank you

best regards,

Hi Marco,
I hope help you with this code.
  • Page 1 (send informations):

  • <form action="page2.jsp" method="get">
    <p>First Name: <input type="text" name="firstName"/></p>
    <p>Last Name: <input type="text" name="lastName"/></p>
    <p><input type="submit" value="Send!" /></p>
    </form>
  • On Page 2 (get and write de informations):

  • <h1>Your is: ${param.lastName}, ${param.firstName}</h1>

    In JSP you can retrieve the informations from an form using the "Expression language (EL)": ${param.xxx}

    See more about EL and JSP Standard Tag Library (JSTL):

    Good Lucky

    sorry to have ask this. I want to ask how to run and compile the code i've typed? (i want to create 2 pages which connected each other) if i use notepad, do i need extra web.xml? if i use eclipse, do i need the web-inf folder?

    by any chance, is there extra library if i want to combine jsp, java and NLP (natural language processing)?

    Thank you all, i am sorry to ask such a question, i am really a noob in using this. thank you.

    This thread had taken a tangent and followed some red herrings, that I was guilty of participating in. In fairness to the original poster, the tangents have been removed and we can now deal with the original topic. My apologies to the original poster for not keeping this on track better.

    Yes, you will need a web.xml in WEB-INF (case counts!) in order to map your servlets.

    by any chance, is there extra library if i want to combine jsp, java and NLP (natural language processing)?


    What library are you using for NLP?
