It's not a good practice to write Java Code in JSP file, though you can do that !

Try to implement following steps,

Read a file, parse it , use bean & write the bean data in <select><option value="write bean data"></select>

So lets start, and ask If you stuck in between !!

APACHE POI, a Parser Utility, would be a good place to start

Apache POI can read XLS files, but not CSV files.

The http://faq.javaranch.com/java/AccessingFileFormats page lists several libraries that can read CSV files (and I recommend that you use a library - CSV is not as simple a format as it looks at first).

Hi Sumanata,

What have you tried so far? It's JavaRanch policy not to just 'hand out code' but to try and guide people with their own efforts. People learn much better that way
