I am new to JSP and need some help regarding selecting a value from Drop down list. Based on the selection I want to display some information on the page but dont want to refresh the page either. What could be the alternates I can do and which one is the best and why? If any one of you can help, thats appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

hi rehan
if you do not want to refresh the page you need to write one javascript function which would be called on the change event of the select or list that function you can do the needful.if any doubts do write back
all the best
