Search for the terms "cascading dropdowns" or "dependent dropdowns". There will be many examples and approaches.

Unless you want to reload the page every time a selection is made, JSP is not going to be useful for this purpose. This type of activity is usually accomplished via Ajax.

Which approach do you wish to pursue?
