Hey friends
how can i get values from database to Java servlet page while it is loading itself

i mean
when the .jsp page will be loaded(displayed on the brower)it should be having the values from database

Ex: <html:select....>

this drop dowm list should have the values from the database wen the page is displayed.

Thanks for you help friends

You should make use of the JDBC here. Write the DB code in your jsp and you have the values you want in your jsp.

The experienced programmers would advise against coding database access in a JSP. It's a poor programming structure to employ.
