You need to implement an application that is executed on a web server.

This application will establish connectivity with the database and generate HTML based on what it retrieves.

It will then send the HTML it generates to the browser.

When the user wants to do something (maybe do another search etc) they will click a button (or something) which will submit the HTML form to the application on the server so that this application can establish connectivity with the database and do what the user requested.

These types of applications are developed using technologies like PHP, ASP/ASP.NET, Perl, Java (Java Server Pages ...jsp) etc.

Look up the topic of developing dynamic websites.

This is a pretty big undertaking to do from scratch.

Consider researching products that already exist that you could expand upon.

Otherwise, your first step will be to gather the requirements for the system.

From there you will design the system (this does not involve any Java). Designing a system requires you to figure out what components will be needed to accomplish all of the tasks that are needed to meet the requirements. This involves breaking down the project into components that you can easily understand so that you easily write the code for the project (writing code is referred to as implementing).

After all of the designing is done, then you should research the technologies that you are going to use (research JSP and databases...like MySql...that you are considering)

Now, once you know exactly what you need to do, and you know about the technologies that you are going to use, you start implementing your project.

This is Not a small undertaking.
It is going to require days of requirement-gathering, designing, and research before you even get to the implementation.


By the way, in web-development the "front-end" is typically the HTML that is generated. The "back-end" is anything that is executed on the server...it is the back-bone that generates the HTML that the user interacts with.
