I have a need to display small number of items in select boxes. Most of them are of the binary tuple form.
e.g. service codes
1 = now
2 = tomorrow
3 = next month
I do not want to query the database every time I need to display these in a drop down box ? What alternatives are available to manage these codes efficiently ? Note that ease of editing these codes is vital.
Thanks
Pho

You can query the database once, and store the information in a bean available for the whole session.
Then you can have jsp pages for managing and displaying the items.
