I am looking at developing forms based on the content of a table. Believe ASPX supports it, can JSP support it. Like my form may have any number of fields etc so form look should depend on data stored in a table. Any hints?

Hi,

I am sure there will be some other way of achieving the thing with JSP which you believe ASPX does. Can you give an example of what you are trying to achieve?

Regards,
Shankar.

What I want to do is have a table in which I should store all table names, field names and the HTML should be generated off this table. I will expect HTML/jSP to handle data types correctly. In my project, I have senerios where I can have different layout of tables and want to avoid having 4000 HTML forms(that is the rough volume of tables we will have geenrated by users). Now, to avoid having exceesive database tables and volume of code I want to take this approah. I have seen PAID software doing this, but I think I can do it in JSP or XML etc.
