how do I achieve below on the webPage

Hi all,

I have a webPage that displays the date field and the products for that day.

Is it possible to dynamically load (refresh) the products from the database table , when the user selects a different date. Then he actually submits the request to display the product details available on that particular day.

Should I use AJAX for this?


Thanks,
Trupti

of course it is possible, all you have to do is whenever the user changes a date , the Page submits itself via javascript and a new product details would be shown. Yes you can also do it via ajax by using ajax4jsf libraries

Thanks For the prompt response. I knew that I have to use the AJAX tachnology. But I have never used it. And I need to finish this task within a day or two. What is the good starting point. I started reading the w3schools.com. But do you have any example as to how this is achieved/

Thanks,
