Calling servlet onchange event

Hi experts,
I am creating a form in JSP, that has different dropdown boxes. For few boxes when we select certain option new input fields appear on screen for example- If from a drop down box that has options:Name, Age,Address, etc., say I select address option then 5 new input fields should appear on screen, i.e. add1, add2, city, state, zip. Now if I select the Name only two fields should appear i.e. First Name, and Last Name. and this time all adress fields should disappear.
Logic is simple, when we select option call servlet and set some value and reload the JSP with the new fields depending on the set value. Now I have done it, but the problem is when I change option and try to call servlet, it does not work.
<tr><td>Option</td>
<td><select name="CHECK" onchange="SERVLET">
      <option value="1">1</option>
      <option value="2">2</option>
</select></td></tr>

Anyone has any idea how to call servlet within the page without submitting the form.
Thanks

You can not call servlet directly from javascript.
you have to create hidden from and call submit. here is an example

<html>
<form name="form1" action="SERVLET" method="POST">
<select name="CHECK" onchange="document.form1.submit();">
     <option value="1">1</option>
     <option value="2">2</option>
</select>
</form>
</form>

sompol_kiatkamolchai  is right, you can write the code as follows

<select name="CHECK" onchange="location.href = 'hrrp://www.myweb.com/servlets/myservlet';">

With parameters
<select name="CHECK" onchange="location.href = 'hrrp://www.myweb.com/servlets/myservlet?para1=value1¶2=value2';">
