I checked many links onm dynamic popup menu, however, Im not sure my one need is satisfied by the solutions I see.

I want the dynamic behaviour of the menu items also. I checked some items wherein the menu items data was in a JavaScript Array. However, the menuitems in my case need to come from backend.

Does anyone know any such free implementation?

What do you mean, "the menuitems need to come from backend" ?

I see two solutions - JavaScript array containing menu definitions can be generated dynamically by server side script/servlet, based on some data you have (from the backend?).

Second solution, is to use AJAX to build/rebuild your menu array - if you need even more dynamic menus :). (Personally, I don't think you really need AJAX)

In both cases, you can use those solutions you have already tried. You must only apply some additional server-side or AJAX logic.

I'd go with CSS dropdown menus if you're comfortable with using CSS positioning. No JS needed, and if your backend can generate HTML, it'll be no problem.
