    I need help so the question also prints the date&time the questions was sent.

    I want the specific date & time which the question was asked to appear alongside the text automatically each time.
    I got the coding just can't get it to work :/
    Here is the JSP coding:
    Code:
    <%@ page language="java" contentType="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1"
        pageEncoding="ISO-8859-1"%>
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
    <html>
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
    <title>Insert title here</title>
    <body>
    <%@ page import="java.util.Vector " %>
     
    Enter a news story here
    <form action=Exercise24.jsp method=post>
    <textarea name="story" rows=5 cols=100></textarea><br>
    <input type=submit value="Save"><br><br>
    </form>
    All news stories:
    <jsp:useBean id="nl" class="newspackage.NewsStore" scope="application"/>
    <jsp:setProperty name="nl" property="story"/>
    <%
    Vector<String> theList = nl.getStories();
    %>
    <ol>
    <%
    for (int i=0; i < theList.size(); i++) {
    %>
    <li> <%= theList.elementAt(i) %> </li>
    <%
    }
    %>
    </ol>
    </body>
    Here is the coding in .java:
    Code:
    package newspackage;
    import java.util.Vector;
    public class NewsStore {
    Vector<String> stories = new Vector<String>();
    public void setStory(String theNews){
    stories.addElement(theNews);
    }
    public Vector<String> getStories() {
    return stories;
    }
    }
    Here is the code to print the specific time the question was sent:
    Code:
    <html>
    <body>
    This question was submitted  <%= startTime %>. <br>
     <%!
    Date startTime = new Date();%></body>
    </html>

    Here is the logic
    In your jsp page when user submits the story, you save the time on the server side with the story, then when you print the results back, you have stimestamp for each story which you can print
    Cheers
