Hi Experts,
           I am displaying the attached chart on my jsp page, Every new month is added in the X-axis as soon as the month gets populated in the Database Table.
           What I want to achieve is , Display the data (SLA Compliance column of the table) present in the chart in a tabular Form, with Column names as months, and with the addition of a new month, a new column should automatically be generated.
           Can someone please help me out with this.

           I have attached the Chart snap shot along with  a snippet of backend Table, used for this chart

1.  First create a bean with Application, Month, Year, SLA_COMPLIANCE and then Total_Metrics attributes and for example we will call it BeanA.

2.  Next in the servlet create a ArrayList named BeanA_ArrayList.

3.  Next loop thru database resultset and as you read each row from the result set, create a new BeanA.

4.  Once done creating BeanA from step3, then add it to a ArrayList called BeanA_ArrayList.

5.  Then store the ArrayList to the request object.

5.  Once done call your jsp page you want to display your table in.

6.  Next in your jsp add addressibility to the ArrayList from the request object.

7.  Next loop thru the arraylist and build the html on the fly.

Look at the below tutorial then go to booklist.jsp... will show you...

The Ultimate Checklist to Optimize Your Website

Websites are getting bigger and complicated by the day. Video, images, custom fonts are all great for showcasing your product/service. But the price to pay in terms of reduced page load times and ultimately, decreased sales, can lead to some difficult decisions about what to cut.

What I was doing till now is this.
just the scratch..

Its giving me the first column fine as Jul, but all others vertically below it

<table border="1" cellspacing="1" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" WIDTH=99.5%>
	<tr>
		<th>Application</th>
		
 
 
	<%
		Connection conn = null;
		conn = db.getConnection();
 
		String sql = "";
		PreparedStatement pstmt = null;
		ResultSet rs = null;
 
		sql = "Select * from WEB_EXSUMM_12MONTH_APPL_V WHERE APPLICATION='ED' ORDER BY DECODE(UPPER(MONTH), 'JAN', 7, 'FEB', 8, 'MAR', 9, 'APR', 10, 'MAY', 11, 'JUN', 12, 'JUL', 1, 'AUG', 2, 'SEP', 3, 'OCT', 4, 'NOV', 5, 'DEC', 6)";
		pstmt = conn.prepareStatement(sql,ResultSet.TYPE_SCROLL_INSENSITIVE,ResultSet.CONCUR_READ_ONLY);
		rs = pstmt.executeQuery(sql);
		
		while (rs.next()) {
	%>
        <th align='center'><%=rs.getString(2) %></th>
     </tr>   
	<tr>
 
		<td><%=rs.getString(1)%></td>
		
		
	</tr>
 
	<%
		}
		rs.close();
		pstmt.close();
		conn.close();
	%>
 
</table>

Heres their example, notice that arraylist books is retrieved from the request object.  The servlet prior to calling the jsp, set the attribute of books with the ArrayList they wanted.

<%                                    ArrayList arrayList = (ArrayList)request.getAttribute("books");                            //loope über die Liste von Büchern und gibt die Eigenschaften aus              for (Iterator iter = arrayList.iterator(); iter.hasNext();) {                    Book element = (Book) iter.next();                                      out.println("<tr>");                  out.println("<td>" + element.getAuthor() + "</td>");                  out.println("<td>" + element.getTitle() + "</td>");                  if(element.isAvailable())                        out.println("<td><input type="checkbox" name="available" value="true" disabled checked></td>");                  else                        out.println("<td><input type="checkbox" name="available" value="true" disabled></td>");                                    out.println("<td><a href="bookEdit?do=edit&id=" + element.getId() + "">Edit</a></td>");                  out.println("<td><a href="bookEdit?do=delete&id=" + element.getId() + "">Delete</a></td>");                  out.println("</tr>");              }        %>
