Fuck, I was all set to implement my database using java servlets, but alas javax.servlet isn't available on the fucking server I'm using . So I'm currently trying to find a work around. Part of what I'm trying to do is take forms directly fromt he jsp file and do an insertion with that information. Is there anyway I can take the text from the forms and assign them immediately to a variable in the java code? I've been looking through a bunch of tutorials and most deal with queries, I can't find anything dealing with this type of insertion.Thanks.
