Now in the first select box i have customer name, so how do i fetch records from mysql in servlet using the customer name. is it that first i need to fetch customer id based on selection and then populate the app id. Also i want to know how to tell ajax that this is the customer i have selected.

This is a simple ajax jsp example go through it. Step #5 shows the serverside code, this you need to change according to your needs.

that shd be fairly easy...

put a javascript on your select box 'onSelect' event..

from this java script make an AJAX call to another jsp which will accept the Customer id ( you will pass it by appending to the url like ...yourjsp.jsp?id=custid...


in the jsp make the connection to the mysql database, get the required values from dbase and then send the details back to your calling jsp..

get the data and show it on HTML...

get some skeleton code along these lines and experts here will help you get it working.
