This is my sample code. This I use in JSP. I need JAVA code that will build the multiline without using javascript

<script language="javascript">
function divBuild()

var count = document.check.rowCount.value;

divID = 'build' + count;
obj = document.getElementById(divID);
count = count + 1;
//obj.innerHTML+="<div id='remBuild"+count+"'><td>Build"+count+"</td><td> <a href='javascript:remove("+count+")'>remove</a></td></tr><tr><td colspan='2'><div id='build"+count+"'></div>"
obj.innerHTML+="<div id='remBuild"+count+"'>Build"+count+"<input type='text' name='txt1"+count+"'></div><div id='build"+count+"'></div>";
document.check.rowCount.value = count;
<form name="check" method ="post">
<input type="hidden" name="rowCount" value="0">
<tr><td>Build1</td><td><input type="text" name="txt1"></td></tr>
<tr><td colspan="2"><div id="build0"></div></td></tr>
<tr><td colspan="2"><a href="javascript ivBuild();">Build!</a></td></tr>

Your code is making bad HTML format since you have divs tested inside of the table tag. Big no no.

Do a search on google for: JavaScript insertRow insertCell

That will show you the correct way to add new rows to a table.

I agree. Here's the link:
