Ok, I actually ran across a use for AJAX on a website I am working on. Stripped down, I am selecting an image from a list and I need to refresh the image on the page. Simple enough.

I am calling a Servlet to process the request and calling the servlet without using AJAX works fine, so I know that is not the problem. So I have to assume it is my JS. Both alert messages are popping up from the updateImage() function, but it would appear that my servlet is never being called. Any help is appricated.

Thanks.

Ok, changed some code and now the servlet is getting called. However, the img tag is not being updated. I know I am retrieving correct values because I had alert debugs in before. After a selection change, the img src is still "" instead of the image path.

FYI - changing

<img name="theImage" src=""/>

to

<img id="theImage" src=""/>

didn't make any difference.

Ok, I am stupid. Made the img tag a div with the appropriate ID and all is well.
