Start by making a plain HTML page with a listbox, any good HTML text will tell you how.
After you get what you want with plain HTML then you can try to duplicate it with JSP.

window.document.formName.selectName.value
will give the value of the selected item from the listbox.
Replace formName with the name of your form and selectName with the name of the listbox.
