Hi experts,

I have some JSP codes embedded insdie javascrip, which populate the select field when user click on a button.

Very strangely, the same codes work on one machine, but failed on other machine. Is there any suggestion about this? thanks.

yes,

the javascript just does not work, with an error "error on the page".
If I try to print something by System.out.println() within the JSP, which is inside of the javascript, then it will not print. the javascript will work if they are OUTSIDE of the <%%>, but the codes inside the <%%> just does not get executed.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I have tracked down the problem to this line:
 
 str = str+"<option><%=e%></option>";

the complete javascript codes are like this:

function fnAddEquip()
 {
 var str;
 var cnt = document.getElementById("tabEquip").rows.length+1;
   str = "<TABLE width=550 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 border=0>";
   str = str + "<span id='erow'+cnt>";
   str = str + "<tr><td><input name='cbEquip' type='checkbox' value=cnt></td><td><select name='equipment' STYLE='width: 160px'>";
   <%
   ArrayList b = equipBean.findAllEquip();
   Iterator ltr = b.iterator();
   while(ltr.hasNext())
   {
    String e = (String)ltr.next();
       %>
   str = str+"<option><%=e%></option>";
   <%} %>
   str = str + "</select></td><td><input type='text' size=24 name='protocol'></td><td><input type='text' size=50 name='description'></td></tr></span></table>";
   tabEquip.insertAdjacentHTML("AfterEnd",str);
 }

> <%=e%>

You can't use that there.
jsp is executed on the server. Whereas javascript is executed on the client.

No idea, check when the ArrayList is populated.
Good to hear it resolved your problem though :)
