hi. i am not sure if this is the place for this query but here it is anyway:
i have a simple html form which allows employees to enter their code and enter a date on which they want a casual leave.
i now want to write code which would allow me to fill in the the code and the date from a db table automatically into my html page and the code should also click the submit button.
thanks in advance

You could start with a static HTML page with a form that is submitted to a servlet. The servlet then looks up data from the db and writes a new HTML page with the extra data. Is that what you are talking about?

yes.... except that i dont want to generate a new html page ... just use the existing page, fill in the data and have the submit button clicked automatically by the servlet.

In order to make things happen on the HTML page in the users browser without re-writing it, you will need to use JavaScript and/or a Java applet. A servlet can't reach out and do something to a page it has already written. Some process on the user's browser will have to be activated.

hi mansoor
it is better if u will used JSP for this but anyway used one method who will return the double dimension array or u can used hashtable also for this purpose.
u know HTML creates static pages and u r using it for dynamic purpose.
