Hi,

I have developed a custom tag with java tag libraries.

This tag retrieves data from the database and shows the data as a table.

Sometimes, the selected data size to huge, which is not a good practice to view it all in one page.

Is there a specific component (or code) that let's me divide the the selected data into chunks and provide the user with links to the chunks so that when the user clicks on one, it will automatically show that selected part of data.

I guess that this probably has to be done using JavaScript.

Thanks in advance ...

No. In fact, JavaScript is a very poor choice for this.

Moved to the JSP forum.

This type of "paging" is best done at the database layer. See this JSP FAQ entry for more information.

But what I'm trying to do is not the paging in the database layer only.

I the view layer to page the result as tabs (or something similar).

Regards,

Its nothing different. You can present the result in whatever way you like. Here in this case you are not doing it using the typical pages way i.e. "page 1 2 3 4 5 .." or neither using "<< previous next >>" way, but using tabs. So, what. Its nothing different as far as logic concerns. You can think of a tab as "next" and "previous" thingy. Or better think of it as pages. Where page 1 would be your first tab, and page 2 would be your second and so on ...

Cheers.
