I am wanting to have a select box populate from a database query based on the information pulled from another select box as the user chooses it (ie a user chooses a state and the city choices populate or something like that). I am using JSP, Servlets and Beans. Seems that I need to us JSF, but I was wondering if there is another way or better way.

Thanks for the thoughts.

They are plenty and they do varies from scripting languages like JavaScript/Ajax/jQuery running queries to server side of application to frameworks that can provide you with like Wicket for example

I guess I need to do more reading on Frameworks in general instead of JSF in specific because I don't think I am grasping the concept behind them as a group. So are you saying that the scripting languages interact with the framework? I was trying to avoid having scripts all over the place, but if they simply call something on the server side framework that would work.
