Adding value to combobox

Hi,

I have a combo box:

Color
<select name="col">
<option value='red'>Red</option>
<option value='blue'>Blue</option>
<option value='white'>White</option>
<option value='green'>Green</option>
<option value='black'>Black</option>
</select>


Values are set at the combo box using the option

How do i get it to get value from database,

for example i have a table
called Color with colorid and description.
How do i do it so that i could add new colors and it gets added to combo.And if i delete the value from database, it gets deleted from combo as well

Thanks

I asume you familiar with JDBC programming and know how to get a resultset from database, and there is what you need to do in your jsp page:
<%
   // jdbc code to get ResultSet from database:
   ResultSet rs = stmt.executeQuery( "select colorid, colordesc from color" );
%>
<select name="col">
<% while( rs.next() ) { %>
<option value='<%=rs.getString(1)%>'><%=rs.getString(2)%></option>
<% } %>
</select>
