Hi,
1. We are using struts 1.1 framework. I need to implement cascading drop down functionality. Is it better to use Ajax/DHTML?
2. If Ajax, will be there any issues on struts 1.1 framework.

regards

Hmmm...I am not sure that posting two very similar questions just a couple hours apart is a good idea. I guess I will pick this thread to reply to.

Do you know how to implement cascading dropdowns in Struts without Ajax? In my case I have been working on a fairly large Struts 1.1 project for the past several years. We have several pages with cascading dropdowns that would cause the entire page to refresh. For our latest release we updated several pages to use Ajax technology by using AjaxAnywhere. AjaxAnywhere is probably not the best choice for a new project, but it has worked well for updating existing pages with minimal effort.
