Hi all
i am creating an application in which i m using jsp,servlet and javascript. on jsp page there are text boxes named ID and Passwprd and a submit button.
When we submit jsp page first javascript will be executed if we left any of the text boxes blank, that means both the text boxes are mandatory else it will go to the servlet.
The issue is after executing javascript it goes to the servlet and i want if javascript is executing then it must not go to the servlet and remain at jsp page.

Please solve my problem....

Post your code. There are various way to do that. If you say that you have javascript that executes then post your code.

        catch(Exception ex){

            out.println("Exception:::::::" +ex);
                finally {


One simple way is this:

<input type="button" value="Login" name="btnLogIn" onclick="val()" />

And at the val function:

function val(){

            alert("Please Enter Your ID");
        } else if(document.getElementById("txtAdminPassword").value.length==0){
            alert("Please Enter password.");
        } else {

If you want to have your button to be of type 'submit' then:

<form name="frmAdminLogin" action="AdminLogin" method="post" onsubmit=" call the method here ">


<input type="submit" value="Login" name="btnLogIn" />


If you want the later way the method at the onsubmit event must return true or false. I don't remember if you must enter it like this:
onsubmit="return val();"

But I do know that val in this case must return boolean
