Hello everybody,
I am working in a "questionair" which is a many steps wizard
I need to collect all the data
then make a confirmation page
then put them in a mySql db

with my normal way ( getParameter() for each one) it will be difficult .

also which session way i can use

Thanks very much

You could use Struts and a session-scoped form bean. As a user goes through the screens, the form bean is filled with data. Then at the end, you pass the data to the business tier for persistence.

Moving to servlets since the question is more about collecting data than putting in database.

Adopting Struts just for this one purpose is a bit heavy-handed. It's easy enough to maintain multi-page form data with simple Java classes.

thank you very much

yes Struts will be hard , since i already don't use it , i can't learn it to do this task

Dear Bear,
do you mean normal class , or a JavaBean which store all the fields in it ?

i think it will be good and simple way
what do you think

thank you all

you can do it with session.
and about bean that would be just your VO. set the some properties of your bean in first request. then set your bean in session as attribute and then get the bean from session set the remaining properties and so on. on completion just do whatever you want to do with your bean.

you can also go for URL re-writing i think.
