Selecting Combo Box

Dear Ranchers,
I'm doing a Human Resource Management System in JSP and Oracle. In my JSP Page, there are 2 Fields

1. Department
2. Designation

When the Page loads, I have the departments under that for egs
- IT
- Operations
- Accounts
- Administration
- Sales
- Business Development

These details are fetched from the database.

When I select IT in the first Combo Box, the corresponding values should come in the second combo box, selected fromt the database without refreshing the page

- System Administrator
- Network Engineer
- Programmer
- Backup Operator

I know, it is related something to AJAX and also I don't know any thing in AJAX. Please help me with your enriched ideas.

Normally called a double combo. Good place to start is to look at Google for http://www.google.com/search?q=Ajax+Double+Combo

I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
