JSP + Spring + Ajax

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.

1. Is Ajax/JavaScript/jQuery the proper way to do this?

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?

5. How to do it properly?

Here is my current code:

any one found solution to this?

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";

Yes, that's a viable approach.

It's made easier by the use of a library such as jQuery.
