sorting table data

I'm currently having problems figuring out how to sort table data based on the value of an html select box i.e. if the user selects a new value in the selection box, the table data below would be updated. Is there any way to do this using struts or should I use javascript instead?

Thank you very much for all your help.

You can use Struts, but the sort would require a call to the server to organize your array or ArrayList or whatever in your ActionForm.

Javascript will allow it client-side.

I agree. Here's the link:
