storing line breaks

storing line breaks

storing line breaks

i'm designing a small forum type web app.
Using JSP and Oracle.

I created a TEXTAREA where a user could write his messages.
i'm able to store these messages in my oracle database.

Now, when i try to read the message again from database and display it on my browser, i could not see the line breaks or any other html tags...it all comes in a single line.

How can i store line breaks (<BR>)in my database.

Please help!



RE: storing line breaks


Do you mean that you :
  • receive the text with end-of-line marks
  • insert <br> tag before each end-of-line mark
  • save the txt into the database
  • retrieve the text from the database
  • discover that <br> tags are not in the text anymore
