Hello all,
I was browsing desperately on the internet and I found this nice website. I am doing some basic coding in Struts, Websphere, J2EE.

I have to design a dropdown on a JSP page, which should contain the list of 10 most recently used customers. I have created the history dropdown in the JSP page, but I'd like to know how to populate the history dropdown. I have tied it to the appropriate action class, but I dont know what to code in the Action class to populate the history drop down. Also, I would like to have the list (of 10 most recently used customers) available in session. I am not very familiar with persistent maps. Could someone explain how to go about it?

I'd really appreciate a quick response.
Thanks a lot.

-Andy.

Andy:


You don't need to populate the dropdown in the Action class. Instead, it should be done by a jsp file using the data in "request" or "session" scope.

The Action class would need to go to the database (or where ever it is you store the recent customers)
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
