Passing input from jsp to action class

+2 votes

In my front end, i am allowing user to create and save multiple number of entries to a table at the same time.

For now i am sending this input to Java class in form of string which i am creating at the time of save. But if table size is very very big(eg. 400-500 entries), then creating string is a time taking process.
Is the any other solution for this?

I'm not sure what you mean "in form of string" - anything in http world is a string. When you posting a form with first name, last name and age, and birthdate - all these values are passed as strings. They can be converted to proper type on server side - automatically by a framework or manually by a developer.
try writing in to a file and passing that file, but it definately will be a bad practice if you 're planning less no of entries.
It means i am adding my all input values to a single string separated by some delimiter. And Split the string in my Class file to get those values.
For example,
|x1 | x2 | x3 | x4 |
|y1 | y2 | y3 | y4 |
|z1 | z2 | z3 | z4 |
var strStr = "x1val||x2val||x3val||x4val||y1val||y2val||y3val||y4val||z1val||z2val||z3val||z4val"
And i am setting this value into a hidden string.

Send them as a List.

In Action:    
private List<String> myList;    

In JSP, handle a counter, and each time the user create a new row, use it to index the row:

<input type="text" name="myList[0]" />
<input type="text" name="myList[1]" />
<input type="text" name="myList[2]" />

and next time the user will create an entry, it will be

<input type="text" name="myList[3]" />

If the user creates the entries from, let's say, a popup or a modal dialog, and they won't be editable after having been created, then generate an field along with a (or whatever):

<input type="hidden" name="myList[3]" value="lastValueEnteredByUser" />

I have a table in Mysql DB like following

mysql> describe APPTBL;
| Field       | Type        | Null | Key | Default | Extra          |
| APP_ID      | int(11)     | NO   | PRI | NULL    | auto_increment |
| CREATE_DATE | date        | YES  |     | NULL    |                |
| CLOSE_DATE  | date        | YES  |     | NULL    |                |
| ACTION      | text        | YES  |     | NULL    |                |

While Starting of App, i am inserting the app details with CREATE_DATE and when it is closing, i am updating its CLOSE_DATE. But in case if user is restarting the app, i want to update NULL in place of CLOSE_DATE column. Here is my query,

mysql> update APPTBL set CLOSE_DATE = NULL where APP_ID = 1;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)
Rows matched: 1  Changed: 0  Warnings: 0
mysql> select * from APPTBL ;
|    1      |  2013-10-08 | NULL       | XXXXXYYYYY |
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

But why i am not getting any result in this??

mysql> select * from APPTBL where CLOSE_DATE = NULL;
Empty set (0.00 sec)

Also, as i am writhing a java program using this where

rs = st.executeQuery("update APPTBL set CLOSE_DATE = NULL where APP_ID = 1");
   // Why it is coming here??
