User when he entered plan "platinum"on jsp page...first servlet and finally DAOImplementation class gets called. Now the someAmountMoney1 variable will have the total investment amount i receive after 3 years. This I want to display it on JSP.

Could anyone provide me suggestion on how the value of variable in method can be called in JSP and display value stored in variable to user?

i have a condition implemented in method :
public boolean getOutManageInvestment(String accountID, String password,
double someAmountMoney, String plan) throws MyWebBankException {

double interestrate;
if (plan.equalsIgnoreCase("PLATINUM"))
interestrate=0.70; double someAmountMoney1=0.0;
System.out.println("Amount you entered is"+someAmountMoney);
System.out.println("Amount you receive after period of 3 years you will receive"+someAmountMoney1);
Hi Friends,

I tried to run an ejb project... and followed the steps in the below blog

In the above link, it says you can export the project as .jar and deploy in autodeploy folder of Glassfish.
1) I started Glassfish and was not able to find autodeploy folder.
2) By putting in that folder, what actually happens...I mean what is the use of writing this application and exporting and putting into this folder....
After this, what do I need to do. Could you please help me with this?

Thank you

hello friend ,

i have written a java code for digitally signing and password protect a pdf document using itext.jar...
now what is happening is i am using export.cer and keystore.ks which i created using a keytool command in command prompt. so when i open the pdf the signature is invalid ...only when i manually click on the signature and verify it then it will get validated...also when i send the pdf to my friends computer the same thing is happening .Could anyone please help me out in solving this issue..
is this because i am using some non trusted certificate and keystore

Also if i have to get a trusted certificate from Versign or actually do they give me the private key similar to keystore.ks
the code is given below . please could anyone help me out !!!

actually i had written a java code to password protect and digital sign a pdf file . in this program i am using private key and export.cer (public key certificate) . now the problem with this code i am facing is the digital signature is valid in my system and if i mail it to my friend the signature signed by me is becoming invalid .

the above two was created using java keytool command in command prompt .

so i thought it is problem with the certificate since it was not trusted one . so i planned to take it from verisign and trying with the openssl command .
do i need to install something in my friends system so that the signature becomes valid .

please could you help me out

hello friend ,

i have to write a java program or application such that for example
1. form16.pdf will be digitally signed , i have written the code for digitally signing a pdf.its working
2. i have also written java program to protect the above signed pdf input as the output of previous program (that is digitally signed pdf) .But problem here is signature is becoming invalid (and its saying document is being tampered.)

But the password is different for different employee / pdf in organisation(for that username corresponding password) . the password protected signed pdf should be sent as attachment over mail and that when the user clicks to open this pdf , It should prompt him with a password and this password should be validated against the table or storage place..and if wrong it should prompt a error message "password entered is wrong "

but i am not supposed to use any Database as such. Please could you provide me some inputs on this requirement
