I don't think you're in the right forum. It looks like you want this one. And when you need help it's best to be specific about what problem you're having. Just asking for suggestions and pasting reams of code won't get you much. I'd probably be able to help you, but I have no idea what you want... :(

my bad...Im getting a "catch without try"..and all my brackets seem to be lined thinking its somewhere between lines 163-185..not sure whats wrong though...I'll try posting in the other spot...sorry bout that

It's no biggie. But I'm sure that there are a few arrogant people around here that love to flame anyone who makes an innocent mistake. Better me helping you out than them driving you away, right? :)

im thinking its somewhere between lines 163-185..

Don't you get a line number with the error? Can you point it out? Lines 163-185 don't contain a catch at all. This is a syntax error so it should be pretty easy to locate with help from the compiler.

unfortunately this is what I get:

org.apache.jasper.JasperException: PWC6033: Unable to compile class for JSP

PWC6199: Generated servlet error:
string:/// 'catch' without 'try'

It says line 300. That's probably right where the offending catch is and you can look back up to find the matching try. I'd help, but I don't have a way of matching the error's line 300 to the line numbers in the code you posted.

The same response I gave in the JSP forum for this question. Move all of this scriptlet stuff out of the JSP into one, or more, beans.

commented: You can tell em but they don't listen. +9

appreciate it fellas.....

your problem is the catch (Exception e) statement that catches your 1st try..
it is called as the Unreachable code problem.

catch (Exception e) is a method of the exception class which is the supreclass to all exceptions and handles all exceptions. so this method shold come as last catch....
if it comes b4 other catches other catches will be ignored as catch (Exception e) statement handles all exceptions... so you get that error

it is called as the Unreachable code problem.

for more details on what i mean check this link

And if those tutorials advocate widespread use of scriptlets they are absolutely worthless. Advocating practices that lead to unscaleable and nearly unmaintainable code is not acceptable.

Edit: Not to mention that this thread is two years dead. Killing this zombie now.
