New to this site, nice stuff you have going here,
I would like to ask for some help with JSP and AJAX, I'm new to that too ;-)
I have a JSP web form with combo boxes,
the combo boxes should be populated with the names from a database table,
I'm cool with connecting to the Database and getting the names, not a problem,
but the real problem I've got is the AJAX to load the names in there and in what form to return the names gathered from the query. I understand there will need to be some form of HTP request and receive statement. but beyond that.. I'm a touch lost
Also the examples that I have seen all seem to have the database connection on the client end... but to my understanding isn't that poor practice?
could someone help me out please? I would really appreciate some very small example that I can sift through and code out myself to see the flow etc!
