"xam" 1st thing: Welcome to the JavaRanch! Please adjust your displayed name to meet the JavaRanch Naming Policy. You can change it here. 2nd thing: Why are you wrapping the request.getParameter() calls in a try/catch block? I don't think that call can throw any exception
3rd thing: Why aren't you wrapping the number parsing in a try/catch block?? if you receive a value other than a Double (a letter, or null) you'll get a NumberFormatException.
4th thing: You need to compare Strings with the .equals(String) method, not ==. I think this is the main 'logic' problem. 5th thing: Try chaining your if statements -- you don't expect there to be more than one userAction, right? so make them if-else blocks
Last thing: What happens if the userAction isn't any of those? what if its null? Hope that Helps!! [ June 01, 2002: Message edited by: Jessica Sant ]
