This week's book giveaway is in the Java in General forum. We're giving away four copies of Think Java: How to Think Like a Computer Scientist and have Allen B. Downey & Chris Mayfield on-line! See this thread for details.
I'm being asked to update a JSP that displays records in table format, where one column is to be a drop down list form element.
Here's the situation: There are 6 Types. There can be 0, 1 or more Conflicts per Type.
Goal: to display a list of records under each type.
For example: if there are 3 records for Type 1, and 2 records for Type 2, the display should be:
TypeRelationStatus 1Brother A 1SisterA 1MotherT 2FatherT 2Brother I
The form element here is the Status field. It is a selection list; one can select from values to change the status.
How can I assign unique form element names to that field. I first tried 2 for loops: 1 loop for the 6 types The 2nd inner loop for the number of records per type. I called the form element name status1, status2, etc� The problem was when it was time for the Type 2 (2nd iteration in outer loop), the form element name started again at status1, status2, etc�
Can anyone help?

This is simple. You can get the unique status names by making the changes as given in bold.
