I'm not gonna download files.

But You can do this:

request.getRequestDispatcher("../folder/index.jsp").forward(request, response);

Regarding about drop down box that's pretty interesting you can try this:

public class customer extends HttpServlet {

private customer service;

protected void doGet(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException, IOException {
    List<customer> customer = service.list();
    request.setAttribute("customer", customer);
    request.getRequestDispatcher("../folder/index.jsp").forward(request, response);

haven't tryied it
will let youknow if it works

do i include the

    request.getRequestDispatcher("../folder/index.jsp").forward(request, response);

in the servlet?

but how do i call a servlet from a jsp page link

<td><a href="Vehicle.jsp"><strong>Vehicle</strong></a>   

find the <url_pattern> tag value of your servlet in the web.xml and provide that value/path in the href='your_servlet' tag as shown bellow

<a href="url_pattern_of_your_servlet"><strong>Vehicle</strong></a>

let me know status as well as if you have any doubt in my clarification

happy coding

so how do i solve this then

appreciate a reply
