On my JSP page, I have some fields the user enters to try and schedule an appointment. What I would like is to have a button that would check the availability of the person being scheduled.
I know how to do this if I make the FORM ACTION another JSP page, but I want to just call my bean code that would do this lookup and then return the results to the current JSP page.
Can this be done?
My problem is I don't know how to SUBMIT the form without the FORM ACTION being another JSP page or a servlet.
Do I need to use Javascript to do this type of local processing where I can pick what the user has entered in the JSP/HTML form fields and then call the bean method (and return the results to the same JSP page)?
Any advice would be appreciated!!!
Thanks much.

You are indeed stuck with Javascript if you want to modify an HTML page rather than totally regenerating it. Doing this sort of thing is a bit of a pain due to variations in how browsers handle things.
An alternative would be to use an Applet which could talk to a servlet.

Thanks for your reply.
I went ahead and just set my FORM ACTION to another JSP page.
