I am using Netbeans in this project. I need to pass the typed information in the form using POST to an arraylist so that when the Servlet is called by GET, it displays a table with the data! But I'm totally new to programming and my knowledge only extends to creating simple forms using POST and receiving POST. Someone can possibly explain this or post a code that do this?

My codes are:

Do you mean you wish to store information retrieved in servlet in an array list?

Hi! To be specific I need to make a form (html5) where people can type name, email and phone number. Call a Servlet (POST) Save the data in Arraylist and if the Servlet is called directly (GET) it must display a table with the informations that were typed.

Is this data supposed to last for the session?
If so, you can store the ArrayList in the session (which you can get from the request object).

Since this is data represents something (maybe a User?) then it would make more sense to create a User class that holds these three pieces of data, and store that in the session.

Never use an array (or list) to store structured data. At minimum use a Map implementation, at best a custom class representing the structured data.

Why aren't you using JSP to create the HTML views?

I dont have experience with coding with Servlets, the only thing I know is how to create the form. The rest is very difficult to me and I really need to understand this
Someone can show me an example off how can I do this? or a video where something like it its done.
