Hi,
I am using beans and JSP. I wont to create a drop down list querying the access database.

Here is the code I have written so far,

package projBeans;
import java.beans.*;
import javax.servlet.http.*;
import javax.servlet.*;
import java.sql.*;
import java.io.*;
import java.util.*;
import java.text.NumberFormat;

public class SearchBean {
            private Connection conn;
            Statement st;
            ResultSet rs;
            Vector ven_vec = new Vector();
            boolean processError = false;
            String ven_base;
            String Tag = null;
            private String dbDriver="sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver";

            public SearchBean() throws ClassNotFoundException, SQLException{
      Class.forName(dbDriver);
      System.out.println("*******Driver Loaded********");
      conn=DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:odbc:planningdb","", "");
       System.out.println("*******Database onnected*****");
            }

      public void setTag(String Value) {
            this.Tag = Value;
            }
      public String getTag() {
            return this.Tag;
      }

public void processRequest(HttpServletRequest request,HttpSession session)throws ServletException,IOException {
             try{
             st=conn.createStatement();
       String sql="Select Distinct Model from [Base Inventory Table] where Vendor='"+request.getParameter("Tag")+"'Order By Model Asc";
           rs=st.executeQuery(sql);
                while(rs.next()) {
                  ven_base = rs.getString(1);
                    ven_vec.add(ven_base);                           this.processError = false;
                     }                              System.out.println(ven_vec.toString());            }catch(SQLException e){}
}

      public boolean getProcessError () {
                return this.processError;
      }

      public String getVen_vec() {
            return this.ven_vec.toString();
      }
}

JSP:**********************************JSP

BODY>
<%@ page language="java" session="true"%>
<jsp:useBean id="SearchBean" scope="session" class="projBeans.SearchBean" />
<jsp:setProperty name="SearchBean" property="*" />
<%
      SearchBean.processRequest(request,session);
      SearchBean.getVen_vec();
      for(int i=0;i< ven_vec.size(); i++) { %>
            <select name="vendor" >
            <option value = "ven_vec(i)"></option>
            </select>
      <%}%>
</BODY>
</html>

However, I am getting an error undefined variable/class name
for:ven_vec when i try to run it

Please help me,
Nubee

com.sun.jsp.JspException:compilation failed:work\%3A8080%2Fexamples\ResultPage_jsp_1.java:102

is this the information you are asking about?

Thanks,

use this;
<option value = "<%=ven_vec(i)%>"></option>
Should work

I changed  <option value = "ven_vec(i)"></option> to <option value = "<%=ven_vec(i)%>"></option>

Now its giving two errors,

com.sun.jsp.JspException: Compilation failed:work\%3A8080%2Fexamples\ResultsPage
_jsp_1.java:102: Undefined variable or class name: ven_vec
                        for(int i=0;i< ven_vec.size(); i++) {
                                       ^
work\%3A8080%2Fexamples\ResultsPage_jsp_1.java:106: Method ven_vec(int) not foun
d in class examples.jsp.proj.ResultsPage_jsp_1.
                out.print(ven_vec(i));
                                 ^
2 errors

oooops....

The JSP part has to be modified

<BODY>
<%@ page language="java" session="true"%>
<%@ page import = "java.util.*" %>
<jsp:useBean id="SearchBean" scope="session" class="projBeans.SearchBean" />
<jsp:setProperty name="SearchBean" property="*" />
<%
     SearchBean.processRequest(request,session);
     Vector ven_vec = new Vector ((Vector) SearchBean.getVen_vec());
     ListIterator iter = ven_vec.listIterator();
%>
 <select name="vendor" >       
<%        
      while (iter.hasNext()) {
            String value = (String)iter.next();
%>
          <option value = "<%=value%>"><%=value%></option>
<%
      }
     
%>
</select>    
</BODY>
</html>
