Hi friends
i am working on struts application
now i want to use ajax for dynamic dropdown lists(ie.. if user selects country from one dropdown list, the next one should show the states of that country )
as we know that we are passing url to javascript and from there we are executing some servlets or jsp and we get the result back to this page.

if we go like this in struts application, this is struts architecture violation.

so how to do this in struts(struts+ajax) without architecture violation.
please help me
any help will greatly cherished


Thanks & Regards<br />Mallik Avula<br />SCJP1.4

I do not think that the architecture police will come and get you! ;-) I suggest searching this form for the term "ajax" as a good place to start. I am considering integrating AjaxAnywhere into an existing Struts application ( It is probably not the best solution for a new project but seems okay for a "legacy" application.

It smells like Scriptaculous autocompleter contorl...
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link:
