LitSearch: Web Application

The Web Application provides a front end to the database. It was written using Java Servlets. To see what it does, go to the LitSearch Website. To see how it works, look at the source code below. Note that the web application was coded to use the MySQL database. There are a number of places where the code had to accommodate MySQL's lack of functionality. Some examples are the numerous places where instead of using subqueries, the query was performed, the relevant values were read out of the result set and used to construct another statement.
