I use a mysql database with students and grades for a training program. I would like to create a dynamic form with one field that works like this: if i write the name in the form and press check, and the student exists, i want it to show me the information about the student and just one form field for the grade. if the user does not exist, i want it to output all the form fields required to insert the data for the student plus the grade field.
Is JSP the proper language for this? How can I accomplish this? I have worked only with php until now, and I have no jsp experience. Can you guide me to any tutorials with a similar approach to forms? Thank you.
