Hello everyone,
Got a school project here.
I need to explain the code I use in general, thats the moral of this school project.
I thought to keep it simple(It actually doesn't matter if I wrote the code myself or that I got it from somewhere, as long as I can explain it.)so I thought to create a simple register form, send the data to the db and then being able to login.
I'm working with NetBeans, but somehow it gives me some errors.

Here's the code:
register.html
Netbeans gives me an error/warning at line 7 "<th bgcolor="#CCCCFF" colspan=2>"
Saying:"Unexpected tag <TH> found, expecting one of <TFOOT>, <CAPTION>, <TBODY>, <THEAD>, <COL>, <COLGROUP>"
If I run the file it works fine though.

<html>
    <head><title>Register form</title></head>
<body>
<form action="/examples/jsp/forms/process.jsp" method=post>

DBHandler.java

import javax.servlet.*;
import javax.servlet.http.*;
import java.util.*;
import foo.FormBean;
public class DBHandler extends HttpServlet {
  public void doPost (HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) {
    try {
      FormBean f = (FormBean) request.getAttribute("formHandler"); 
      boolean userExists = false;
      //obtain a db connection and perform a db query 
      //ensuring that the username does not exist
      //set userExists=true if user is found in db
      //for a simple test, you can disallow the registration
      //of the username "rogerm" as:
      //if (f.getUserName().equals("rogerm")) userExists=true;
      if (userExists) {
        f.setErrors("userName","Duplicate User: Try a different username"); 
        getServletConfig().getServletContext().
          getRequestDispatcher("/jsp/forms/retry.jsp").
          forward(request, response);
      } else {
        //retrieve the bean properties and store them
        // into the database. 
        getServletConfig().getServletContext().
          getRequestDispatcher("/jsp/forms/success.jsp").
          forward(request, response);
      }
    } catch (Exception ex) {
      ex.printStackTrace();
    }
  }
}

I get the most errors at the DBHandler code.
First 2 lines saying package does not exist.(I guess thats about right, since I doubt the javax libraries aren't included by default)

Line 3: Unused import
Line 4: Package foo does not exist
Line 5: Cannot find symbol: class HttpServlet
Line 6: Cannot find symbol: class HttpServletRequest, location: class DBHandler
class HttpServletResponse, location: class DBHandler
Line 18: Cannot find symbol: method getServletConfig, location: class DBHandler
Line 24: Cannot find symbol: method getServletConfig, location: class DBHandler

Need some help here lol.

It could be that this doesn't work anymore since this a bit outdated, this was posten in 2000.

learn to read. It tells you exactly what's wrong. And ALL of it has to do with missing imports and/or classpath entries.
If the compiler can't find a package or class you're importing it generates an error on the import statement.
Later if you use that class, it tells you the class doesn't exist (and it doesn't, as it wasn't imported because the import failed).
ALWAYS fix errors from the top down, later errors may very well be caused by earlier ones.

Well the problem of all the missing packages, is that I don't know where to find them.

Ask one question at a time my friend. You have asked too many question I cannot follow.
Would you just post code that is relevant to question.

In JSP project there is web-inf/libs
put your custom libraries like JDBC drivers there. I will suggest you start with checking if you are connecting to DB go on form handling...etc.
I'm new to JSP and don't know Javabeans so on that sorry :)
