jQuery:
$('.dropdown-menu li').on('click', function(){
		$('div.hiddenDiv').hide();
		var divClass = $(this).attr('class');
		$('div.' + divClass + ' p').text('This is the hidden div for the ' + divClass + ' dropdown selection.');
		$('div.' + divClass).show();
	});
	$('div.hiddenDiv button').on('click', function(){
		$('div.hiddenDiv').hide();
	});

Open in new window

<div class="btn-group" id="service_type">
                        <button type="button"  class="btn btn-default dropdown-toggle endPoint_type" data="xml" data-toggle="dropdown"> XML <span class="caret caret_right"></span></button>

                             <li class="java"><a id="java" href="javascript:void(0)"> Java</a></li>

                             <li class="sap"><a id="sap" href="javascript:void(0)">  SAP gateway</a></li>
                          </ul>

        <div class="hiddenDiv json"><button>X</button><p></p></div>
        <div class="hiddenDiv java"><button>X</button><p></p></div>
        <div class="hiddenDiv salesfor"><button>X</button><p></p></div>
        <div class="hiddenDiv sap"><button>X</button><p></p></div>

Open in new window

As written, it will only work if each dropdown item has a single unique class name.

Sorry, forgot to include my css for the hidden divs.

div.hiddenDiv {
            width:300px;
            height:200px;
            background-color:#def;
            display:none;
            position:absolute;
            top:300px;
            left:300px;
      }

Thanks for the points.
