Hello.
I have built a hibernate project and the dropdown list and the table load data to the web page but the drop down list is not poulated with the names (derived from the xml id)
There is a lot of code to paste. Is there someone that could help me with a project of this nature? What code will you need from me?
Thanks
-Steve

What exactly "isn't happening"?
Check the generated html. Is the data there but isn't it shown?
If it is your html generation is at fault. If it isn't, you are almost certainly having an error in a loop somewhere in your code, causing the output of the list to be skipped.

I am very new at this hibernate animal but I will post the code that seems relevant to what your questions seek. Oh and all I would like to do at this point is somehow us the teachers id to aquire all the teacher name put them in <Teacher>list and then an array any way basically load the teacher names in the drop down list. At one point I had the id's in there and now there is nothing

the dropdown in bound to the instructorOptions(which I just noticed may be spelled wrong) items bound to instructorsOptions and selected property targets selectedInstrId


page.html code (and I'll throw in the desing if it permits)
person.hbm.xml
sessionBean1(note the two method at the end.
Thanks
-Steve

and also this is booking information need that allow a join between teachers and students.
the studens xml. .jav etc not included.

I have entity classes too. (getters,settersj)
Thanks again
-Stev

interesting. I wish I knew which array it was. Odds are I'll find it. is it where it says opt++;?

instructorOtions=new Option[teacherList.size()];
        int i=0;
        for(Teacher teacher:teacherList){
            Option opt=new Option(teacher.getInstrNum(),teacher.getInstructor());
            instructorOtions[i++]=opt;
        }

Could someone show me some techniques for debugging this code. I can't seem to think of a way to see what is in the list and arrays
-Steve

I found the prob.

public void prerender() {
    try {
        if (dropDown1.getSelected() == null ) {
            Option opt = getSessionBean1().getInstructorOptions()[0];
            getSessionBean1().setSelectedPersonId((Integer)firstInstructor.getValue());
        }
    } catch (Exception ex) {
        log("Error Description", ex);
        error(ex.getMessage());
    }
}

I needed to build the prerender();
Thanks
