I have 2 select menus in jsp and 1 text area.
Based on the selection of the first menu, I am getting some values in the text area (I am using AJAX).
Now the problem is I am trying to add some more values based on the second menu, the values in the text area are replacing by newones.(using AJAX)

How do I make all the values available in text area.
please suggest me a way to do it.
Thanks in advance

The fact that this is in a JSP is moot.

If you are over-writing the value of the text area at the end of each Ajax call, then yes, the values will over-write each other.

If you want the values appended, just be sure to do that.
