This is one of the most common questions asked in the JSP forum.

Search that forum with "select", "list", "dynamic", and "combobox" and you will find plenty of discussions on the subject.

I also have an example app that does this using an MVC pattern which you're free to download and use.

Look for Dynamic Select Lists.
