Hi experts,
               I designed a jsp which has a couple of dropdowns and the values for which comes from the database dynamically, the connection code is in a bean and the call to the bean is made from this jsp. my question is initially both the dropdowns have all the possible options from the database but when one of the options is selected from the dropdown the options for the other dropdown should change accordingly......

I guess I can use javascript(but do not have a clear idea) or any other way I could achieve this........ could someone give me a detailed plan .
