If you want to do this with out submitting the page upon dropdown value selection, you need to use AJAX or some thing similar.

Another method: You can initialy fetch whole data and store it on local variables when page loads initialy. This is a very bad way of coding.

Next method is submit the page upon onChange and retrive data and show it according to the selection.

that is called AJAX.
this whole forum has innumerable posts related to AJAX.
Try googling. you will find many links which provide free tutorials.

Hi all,
I am not sure if I understand the situation, but shouldn't a submit on the onchange of the dropdown work? Should we opt for AJAX in such a situation also?

And you are going to pay us how much to code it for you? You need to try to get it to work. Show us what you have tried.

if yiou want to do anything related to the database then you have got to go to the server. there are two ways of doing it in javascript which i am aware of. One is to post the whole page to a second JSP which will act on the values recived and prepare the html that you want.
Another is to use AJAX which will fetch the data from the server without refereshing the whole page.

you need to do this onchange of the second select box.
Please do not ask for code, you can write it on your own. Ultimately code is not that important, understanding the concept is important because that is what you remember and not the code.
just a friendly advice.
