My application is using the struts framework. Now I have situation, I need to code for sticky notes feature in my application. For eg there will be a table with multiple rows. Each row will have a button. When the button is clicked, the sticky notes should open. It needs to have "save" and "close" options on the sticky notes. If I type anything and "save", it should be available for next user, even if they are accessing from another machine.

Now I do not know what software to use to achieve my functionality and I also do not know if I am posting in the right section. Please kindly help. Thanks for your time.

Please be sure to ask Struts questions in the Struts forum. I have moved this post there for you.

You can use JavaScript to create such functionality. I'm surprised Bear didn't take the opportunity to hype JQuery, which takes a lot of the pain out of JavaScript and there's a Struts plug-in available.
