I am working on a servlet and Im trying to display an array

I am working on a servlet and I'm trying to display an array of objects in that servlet, but I keep getting errors.
Hi
Welcome to JustAnswer
What errors are you getting?

I'm using Netbeans to develop the servlet and I get messages like "; expected" and other syntax errors I don't understand. What I'm trying to do is instead of using a JSP, I want to use a servlet that will display an array of music that the user selects from a listbox. The code that I used in the JSP looks like this:


<p>We'll use email to notify you whenever we have new releases for these
types of music:</p>
<tr>
<td align="right"></td>
<td>
<%
String[] MusicInterests = request.getParameterValues("


musicInterests");
for (int i = 0; i < MusicInterests.length; i++)
{
%>
<%= MusicInterests %><br>

<% }

%>
</td>
</tr>



That code works great in the JSP, but when copied into the servlet, I get the errors. What format should I be using instead?
Could you provide me your servlet (.java) file

Hi Jonathan,

I reviewed the file.

Copy paste of JSP page contents will not work.
To render JSP contents to client(browser), you will need to put them inside println method of out object of PrintWiter class.

you can write:
< html > in JSP but in servlet, you will need to write:
out.println("<html>");

Also using System.out.println will display contents on server console and not in client window. You will need to use out.println again.

Use "out" to send content to browser
See code of ServletDemo1.java at

Hope it clears or reply if anything else is needed and share your entire project

I uploaded the entire project at:


http://wikisend.com/download/532962/ch06emailex1.zip


I did follow the correct syntax for servlets, but it still did not work.


I was able to get everything else to display correctly except for the arraylist that should come up when the user chooses more than one type of music from the listbox.


Let me review. Please wait
There were syntax error. I have corrected them. Now it is working.

For LogicPro only


 


Hi,


Are you online tonight? I had mentioned before that I wanted to build a website for fun and needed help. I found an example in the Murach's Java Servlets and JSP book that I wanted to build and I think I will need help getting the pages to work together.
