Ok heres my problem..
Im creating a webpage (servlet).. and on that page, theres 2 drop down boxes.. BoxA and BoxB.. the contents of BoxB are dependant on the selection in BoxA.. so say you select a certain date in BoxA drop down list, BoxB drop down list will contain the names of people that visited the site that day. Select a different date in BoxA, the list in BoxB will dynamically change to reflect users on the new date. in other words, When User selects a listing in boxA, the servlet will query the database and populate boxb.
I havent written any code yet, and i was planning to do this with servlets (im still a real newbie to serverside java so I was hoping to do it with servlet since it looked simpler than JSP).
I was hoping to get some pointers on or perhaps an algorithm to how this is done with servlets..
My general idea so far is:
1. user makes call to url and it displays webpage with 2 list boxes.
BoxA is initially populated with dates, BoxB is empty.
2. User selects date from BoxA, how would you get your servlet to populate
names in BoxB.
Ive already created this project as a java applet at http://220.127.116.11/p20/
Basically what i want to do is translate this applet into a servlet, due to the fact that 99% of the people use the old MS JVM that wont support this applet...
Again, any ideas, pointers, tips, whatever would be greatly appreciated..
