Im new with jsp.. ill be grateful if anyone can help me with this!! thanks in advance!

The else condition is not getting processed in the jsp file but if condition processes fine!
first, here is the code of the html file:-
<html>

<body bgcolor="#ffffff">

<form name="mod" method="post" action="emp_verify.jsp">
<h1 align="center">Modify Employee</h1>
<h2 align="left">Enter The Employee Id to modify the details:
<input type="text" name="T1"> </h2>
</form>
<p align="left"><input type="submit" value="Submit" name="sub1"> </p>
<hr>
<p align="left">  </p>

</body>
</html>

NOW THIS IS THE CODING OF emp_verify.jsp:-

<%@page language="java" import="java.sql.*" %>

<html>
<body>

<%
String id=request.getParameter("T1");


try{

Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver");
Connection con=DriverManager.getConnection("jdbcdbc:es123","","");


PreparedStatement ps=con.prepareStatement("select * from addition where emp_id=?");
ps.setString(1,id);

ResultSet rs=ps.executeQuery();

if (rs.next()) {
%>
<!-- when successful page turns to emp_about.jsp--!>

<jsp:forward page="emp_about.jsp" />

<% } else { %>

<!--but when unsuccessfull this is not displayed --!>

EMPLOYEE ID DOES NOT EXIST!

<% } %>
<% }
catch(Exception e){} %>

</body>
</html>

when entry is found, control is properly transfered to emp_about.jsp, but
when entry is not found in the database the code in else condition does not shows up!

please help me with this, im new in jsp!!!
thank you!!!

Please be sure to take the time to compose descriptive subjects for your posts; read this for more information.

Using a title of "help me" isn't very descriptive.

That's ok, we all start somewhere. Something esle you should do is to be sure to use UBB code tags when posting code to the forums. Unformatted code is extremely hard to read and many people that might be able to help you will just move along. Please read this for more information.

As a beginner in JSP, you should immediately be advised that putting Java code (especially database code) in a JSP is considered a very poor practice. Java code is much easier to deal with when factored into beans and model classes.

Swallowing exceptions is also pretty bad.
