I have no jsp experience thus the dilema. What I am trying to do is to generate a drop down menu dynamically using jsp. I have a unix script that returns to me a list of variables that I would like to use to populate a drop down menu. How do I call the script and how do I then get the data into the menu? I am using the unix sript to access another application that returns a set of directories that I then parse for particular values. Thanks, -Matt.
