in our project we are using ejb3.0 and struts2.0.I need guide links to implement dependent drop down lists.can directly cal bean in javascript using Ajax,Struts 2 allows s:select tag to get list.if we use two lists,one list should be empty,means no values.i tried to give id and name property without list property.But it doesnt allow without list property in select tag.how can i implement using Ajax with Struts2,In google,i didnt get sample code for struts2.x with Ajax examples.
this is urgent.

I'm not sure if this will help in your situation or not, but there is an example of a dependent autocompleter in the struts-showcasee-2.0.x.war file that comes with the download.

One word of caution, though: while this example worked fine for me using the FireFox browser, it did not work using Internet Explorer Version 7.

Selvaraju,

Thanks for letting us know how you solved it. If you get the time, it would be great if you could show us some sample code of your solution. These forums are searchable, and I'm sure it would help the next person having this problem to see your solution in greater detail.
