Waz up All,
I don't know how many other pepe's are getting this error message but its stumping me. Here's the scenario:
I have two servlets, one called Employee_Category where an employee sends a category via a from method to the Employee_Items servlet...here is that code:
out.println("<form method=\"POST\"action=\"Employee_Category_A\">");
out.println("<p align=\"center\">Categories</p>");
out.println("<p align=\"center\"><select size=\"5\" name=\"Category\">");
while (RS.next())
{
//iterates through the results of the query...
out.println("<option>" + RS.getString(1) + "</option>");
}
out.println("</select> </p>");
out.println("<p align=\"center\"><a href=\"Employee_Items\">Click here to display the");
out.println("items of the category</a></p>");
I apologize for the spaghetti code. That code works like a charm. Now I go to my Employee_Items servlet and I over ride the post method and grab the paramter from the Employee_Category servlet. Now after that I want to query the database using the parameter from the Category servlet and it seems like I have to over ride the get method to do this. But how can I get the parameter from the Category servlet? I'm stumped yo!
thanks,
Matt

Here's my code for the Items servlet (some of it)

PreparedStatement stmt = C.prepareStatement
("select item from item where category =?");
//this sets the ?'s values in numerical order
stmt.setString(1,Category);


//executes the query
ResultSet RS = stmt.executeQuery();

//for debugging purposes only
//System.out.println("WE'RE CONNECTED");

out.println("<p align=\"center\">Employee purchase page</p>");

out.println("<form method=\"POST\" action=\"Employee_verify.html\">");
out.println("<p align=\"center\">Office Supplies:</p>");
out.println("<p align=\"center\"><select size=\"5\" name=\"ItemBid\">");
while (RS.next())
{
//iterates through the results of the query...
out.println("<option>" + RS.getString(1) + "</option>");
}
