I used the code below. It gets all the userNames from the db and populate the drop down menu. Of course remember to first initialise your Connecetions and ResultSets.
out.pritnln("<SELECT NAME =selectedCustomer>");
out.println("<OPTION VALUE =none SELECTED> Please Select A userID </OPTION>");
while( {
userID = rs.getString("userID");
out.println("<OPTION VALUE =\"" + userID + "\" + ");
out.println(">" + userID + "</OPTION>");
} // end while
