I have a similar problem to this one and a solution to this one might help him as well.
Basically I have a web page which contains a table containing some data. The table is created when the page is loaded from the controller model. This works fine.
This table is defined on a separate jsp and uses JSTL to display each line of data.
In the meantime some changes can happen on the database side. Instead of reloading the entire webpage I would like to reload the table by "refreshing" its model when the user clicks on the refresh button.
2. If I get it right, this [document.getElementById("dataTable").innerHTML = <jsp:include page="auditTrailTable.jsp"/>] doesn't work because it will be included the first time the page is loaded. Correct?
3. A way to do it would be to replace content of the dataTable div with a new table generated on the server side and sent back to the browser?
4. I like to keep things separated (model, view, controller, jsp divided) and no code duplication.
So if I use Ajax, is there a way to keep this separation to generate the table a) the first time the page is loaded b) when the user clicks on refresh?
I am also facing similar problem where div element is loaded dynamically by JSTL (c:forEach). and when I want to reload this div, all the suggested solutions on net asks to update innerHTML via something similar to
document.getElementById(divID).innerHTML = "new string";
