Subject RE: Submit Button

Sorry, I thought my shorthand was obvious.

The 1 line short hand was intended to represent any kind of String

String action = request.getParameter("action");
	// action is new
}else if("edit".equalsIgnoreCase(action)){
	// or action is edit
}else if("delete".equalsIgnoreCase(action)){
	// or action is delete

Laziness will get me every time! Hope you didn't spend too much time
debugging this. I wil try to be more specific in the future.

This is an oops which is hard to catch.  If 
request.getParameter("action") is "New", 
(request.getParameter("action")  == "New") is FALSE.
