Hi
place the selected value or index in a hidden text box or in a variable and then assign it to the select box using javascript. this gets selected when the values come from the d/b into the second select box.
Hope this helps u.

Hi devender
As I can understand you submit from first page having a listbox(first) , you have to get this in the second page which has second listbox with the current selected value as the one you just selected.
try this in second jsp

I thing this is what you wanted.
