I have a JSP where in I would like to transfer the contents of one list to another via a button.

Source List Target List
------------ ------------
Foo Bar
Test Add Bar 2
Test 2 Rem Bar 3
Test 4 Bar 4

I am hoping to use dispatch action and JSP to get this to work. Does anyone have a sample JSP and/or suggestions on the best way to accomplish this?

Thanks

Would this be two lists inside of a form on the page? Is the output text, a select field, a textbox?

I'm not sure I completely understand the question. There are many ways to share information between two lists on a page, but it largely depends on the context you plan on sharing them.

I am assuming the actual information comes from the back-end as well.

If you're transferring options from one select box to the other, I'd suggest using JavaScript.

This link shows a demo of this and allows you to download the JavaScript code.

Sorry about the delay. Yes the actual information comes from the back end.
So we would have two lists, one list of currently assigned items and a second list of items that can be assigned. I want to be able to transfer between one list to another. I am aware that this can be done using javascript. Was checking if someone has implemented where clicking on Add takes one to the Action class and returns?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
