retrieve row data from a table

retrieve row data from a table

retrieve row data from a table


I'm new to JSP and I'm doing a project on it.
I am trying to adapt the MVC model as much as possible.
So, my Controller talks to the Model which accesses a SQL database to retrieve the required information.Then the Controller dispatches data to the View (the JSP page). I could do these steps successfully (I'm just trying to explaining clearly what I've done so that it would be easier for you help me).

The extracted data displayed in the JSP page in rows in a table.
BookTitle    Price   AddToCart

What I want is that when I click on the hyperlink "AddToCart" the corresponding data row (including BookTitle, Price) has be to displayed in a new page with the following format:
Book title: Name of the book
Price:      Price of the book
with exactly the same characteristic as in the complete table. That is if the complete table result has alternate color on a row, the extracted table (
Book title: Name of the book
Price:      Price of the book)
must have the same characteristic.

I don't know which JSTL tag to use to implement this task. Please help me,

Thanks a million,
