Quick Search Results page cant put multiple results into a table  RSS feed

Hi all,

I have a little problem regarding my quick results search page created with jsp and jstl. What is wrong is that after I submit my quick search jsp form and the servlet processes the request, the results page is not appearing, only stating that no books match my search criteria. So it is not forwarding to the results page, even though I know there are multiple results i nthe database which should be output to a table. Here is my code:

Again to clarify, I know my database has more than one search term such as different java books, but when I select "All" from my search form, and submit this, instead of forwarding this to the results page, it gives me an error that no resources match my search criteria. However, when I search for a specific title, the book will be displayed in the results table. How can I get my code to actually display all the results that match the search term provided by me?

Thanks if you can help.

You're asking why your query returns zero records? That sure looks like a JDBC question to me. Moving...

I see two things that are odd.
1) It looks like you only run the query if "all" is selcted? This seems like it isn't what you want.
2) The actual query looks for a title. If you are looking for "All", you'd need to omit the where clause.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
