Populating dynamic data into fields

Hi, We have a table of data at the top of the JSP page and a set of fields corresponding to each column at the bottom of the page. The data of table is populated from the database whenever the page is opened.

I want to be able to click on a particular row of the table and populate the data corresponding to that row in the following fields.

What is the best way to implement this?

Javascript is probably the easiest way, and it will be the most responsive to the user.

first pass the record id to javascript function on click event wirte


value means your record id

then in the page get the value using request.getParameter("id");
pass this id to your query then display the result set in a table format..

i hope this solves your problem
