what i mean is are you getting data from databse or somewhere else?

can you describe the structure of your data?

so that we will try to give the solution otherwise its hard to suggest any solution

yes iam using sql server 2000,where my table name is qbank(id,question,optionB,optionC,optionD,optionE,Ans) i have to retrive the data using arraylist and hav to display randomly in jsp page same as online test, from the database it has to retrive the data and display with questions and options ,if user clicks next button the next question should come ,if clicks previous button it should go prevoius question. every time a user come for test it should retrive data from db randomly and make them to atten test .after finishing test the clicked answer should be saved in db . its quite urgent .thanks in advance


go through the bellow link which gives an idea to build a solution for your problem


in that question and answers are taken as static data . if you try to get those data dynamically then your problem will be solved i think

first try it yourself

if you have any doubts we are here to help you

<%@page import="java.sql.*"%>
<form method="post" action="result.jsp">
<table bordercolor="red" border="1">
Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:odbc:univkey","sa","sql");
Statement st=con.createStatement();
ResultSet rs=st.executeQuery("Select * from C");

    //String q=rs.getString("question");
    ResultSetMetaData rsmd=rs.getMetaData();
<td><INPUT TYPE=RADIO NAME=\""+n+"\" VALUE=\""+"a\"   checked=\"checked\">&nbsp;(a)&nbsp;<code>"<%=rs.getString("A") %>"</code><br></td>

hi friend ,, kindly help me on jsp not java script ,,i hav to retrive one by one question using arraylist .


i think we can't acieve this requirement without javascript support.

what i mean is we cant assign the html button events to iterate arraylist which is placed inside jsp scriptlet.

so you have to wait for better idea from anyone of the experts over here
