This tutorial explains you that how to fetch data from database and set it into the dropdown list dynamically. In this example we will explain the dynamically fetching of data into the dropdown list in JSP using Eclipse IDE and the Tomcat 7 server.

For creating a Dropdown list there is a tag in HTML given below that you can embed it into your JSP page.

<select>
<option value=""> </option>
<option value=""> </option>
</select>

Size of the options is controlled by the browser and if you want to limit the size of list to be shown you can use the 'size' attribute of <select> tag.

Example

An example is being given below for fetching data from the database and set it into the dropdown list in JSP using MySQL. To accomplish this task we will first create a database table in MySQL and then we will make a jsp page where we will write the code for making a connection with database and the code for executing sql query, then we will write the code for getting the value of resultset and then for set it into the <option> tag.

Database table

CREATE TABLE `users` ( 
`userid` int(5) NOT NULL, 
`firstname` varchar(20) DEFAULT NULL, 
`lastname` varchar(20) DEFAULT NULL, 
PRIMARY KEY (`userid`) 
) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1
