You replied it is easy in AJAX but iam not perfect in AJAX but i wrote some code in Struts is it correct process or not will you provide correct process to me

import java.util.ArrayList;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse;
import org.apache.struts.action.Action;
import org.apache.struts.action.ActionError;
import org.apache.struts.action.ActionForm;
import org.apache.struts.action.ActionMapping;
public final class SearchAction extends Action
public ActionForward execute(ActionMapping mapping,
ActionForm form,
HttpServletRequest request,
HttpServletResponse response)throws Exception


if (templateList != null && !templateList.isEmpty())
templateLable = new ArrayList();
for (int i = 0; i < templateList.size(); i++)
List state=new arraylist();

Template lableValueset = (Template) templateList.get(i);
if (lableValueset != null)
LabelValueBean lvb = new LabelValueBean(lableValueset.getTemplateName(),
request.getSession().setAttribute("TEMPLATE_LIST", templateLable);

As per the requirement you hav posted,

When an first option box is clicked

a new set of Collection is need to be loaded,

so when the First OptionBox is Clicked (Using OnClickOption)- It need to be forwarded to a new

Action - Where it can load the another set of Collection for the Next

OptionBox. Similarly for other optionboxes.

The Values of the optionbox need to be Persisted every time a new Click is made.
I agree. Here's the link:
