I got a combo box in the jsp page, the data of which is from database, how can I do to make sure that the combo box is populated once the jsp page is loaded. What method I use for the form?
Thanks.

I feel there are 3 ways of doing it.
1. Have a Javabean filled with data and use the <jsp:useBean> tag to fill the values.
2. Use a JSP custom tag which outputs the HTML of SELECT control(combo box) with data filled in.
3. Use scriptlets to fill data.
Surely as many agree I would go for option 1 or 2.
Hope this helps,
Have fun,,
Vadiraj.

Thanks, Vadiraj.
Sorry for coming back to you so late. Have been very busy jsp-ing and forgot to check this out. Yes, I did sort the combo out finally.
Thanks again.
