I have database table column as

Itemid | Amount

I shall have a screen attached .

When my user submit the form. I want to insert the data into the above  table.

How do I collect the data in the servlet  so that it can preserve the mapping  i.e   itemid with Amount ?

You can preserve the indexes in the names
item1, amount1, etc

at the server side, you need to know how many pairs are there, then you can simply fetch
request.getParameter( "item" + index ); //in the loop
request.getParameter( "amount" + index ); //in the loop

something like this?

Thanks for the comments. I get some pointer . But my actual screen has one more field.  The above screen is just small part of it.

Here is the proposed screen and proposed database table ATTACHED.


Please see  screen and database table. As you see for a given ID in the screen I have multiple  (select box , amount ) pair.

How do I capture data  at server side for such a screen ? Can you please tell me a workaround ?

N.B: I generate those dynamic rows <tr>  and  select boxes using javascript.

That should not be an issue.

You just need to name those input fields (select and amount) in such a way that by just appending the index (or a counter in a for loop) you should be able to retrieve values in servlet

Still confusing. Need more help here. I'm stuck at this part

>>>You just need to name those input fields

What name you suggest for  ID field ?

What name you suggest for select box and amount pairs  for the above ID field ?

This means, that for each Id there has to be select box and textbox right.
In this case, i would name my select box and textbox as item_{id value} and amount_{id value}

so, if you are iterating through the ids, you can easily fetch the select box and textbox value by appending the id value to the item_ and amount_

No. This will not work.

>>>i would name my select box and textbox as item_{id value} and amount_{id value}

you will have a  multiple select box and textbox for a  given id_value.

How do you address that  ?

Good question. Got me thinking.
I guess one way to deal with this is to have a hidden input for each id, which will tell us how many item and amount pair are for each of them.

Not understood.  I dont get your idea.  Could you please tell me

in JSP:
-------------
what you write for ID field name ?

what you write for select box  name ?

what you write for amount box  name ?

In Servlet
--------------------
How you retrieve the multiple values  for ID's and corresponding select box and amount pair now ?

<<what you write for ID field name ?>>
1

<<what you write for select box  name ?>>
item1

<<what you write for amount box  name ?>>
amount1

hidden field value == 1

-----------------------------------------------

now if the hidden field value is 2, which means that for one id there are more than one pair

For item id 1 and hidden field value 2
item1_1
amount1_1
item1_2
amount1_2

You should not write a field name as "1" !  ...although nothing stops .

Please note i have to get the value of ID field also.
I should  NOT be doing this    

String field_value=request.getParameter("1"); // this  ..very bad

you need to have another column added to the table - SeqNo - which would be having value of 1,2,3 etc for a given ID. Please note the combination of ID and SeqNo can be maintained as Unique value if required...
This you can use when naming the type and quantity
for ex:
ID="<ID>"
name="Name_<ID>"
address="Address_<ID>"
type="type_<ID>_<SeqID>" for ex:TYPE_101_1, TYPE_101_2 etc...
Quantity="Quantity_<ID>_<SeqID>" for ex:Quantity_101_1, Quantity_101_2 etc...

Please let me know if you face any issue in this...
