patience grasshopper. Your question has been up less than two hours.
And I'm not even sure I understand the question.

Where is the data coming from?
What code have you already got?
Which bit are you having trouble with?

I can break it down into two broad sections.
- Code to query database table and put results into List. (in a bean)
- JSP page rendering the dropdown box. Use JSTL to loop through the list and generate an option element for each item in the list.

If you are using a framework like Struts/JSF there are custom tags that can help you with that second part.

There is no such thing as a Combo box in HTML. Do you mean a select element? (sometines called a dropdown).

hai.. what i understand from you question is you want to place the database values in the combobox in the jsp page yes?

if yes

the logic lis very simple...

<SELECT class=drop style="WIDTH: 143px" name=scountry >
<option selected>Select a Country</option>
<option selected value=<%=test%>><%=test%></option>
<% while( {%>

st1= rs.getString("countryname").trim();

<option value="<%=st1%>"><%=st1%></option>
