don't do that kind of stuff in a JSP. Use a proper application architecture, JSPs should be used for display only and NEVER use scriptlets.

I agree with jwenting. Its a bad idea to do database programmiing in a jsp. But my guess is you won't stop doing it. So I would recommend puting system.out statements in your catchs to see if an exception is being thrown. I would also try and up your logging on your database to see exactly what is being requested. Overall, the logic looks ok, maybe the data being sent isn't correct.
