dynamic population of dropdown list

Hi Folks,'

I have a very common scenario to populate a drop down list according to the selection of parent drop down

For example I need to populate State drop down while selecting country.

I have already achieved this by invoking a MII transaction using Ajax/JSON calls. Transaction will invoke the SQL query and will return the result back to browser.

I am just wondering can't we do this via servlet in MII. I have copied the code below where I am invoking a servlet which will execute the SQL query. But I want to know how can I pass a parameter to the SQL query while invoking servlet. Is there any way to do?

function loadState()


var svltURL="/XMII/CM/GUI/Common/SERVLET/svltTemplate.irpt";

var qryActionType="Default/GUI/Queries/sqlGetState";

$.getJSON(svltURL,{QueryTemplate:qryActionType},function(result) {

var jsonobj = result;

for (i = 0; i < jsonobj.aaData.length; i++) {

var oActionType = document.getElementById("ddnType");

var newElement = document.createElement('option');

newElement.text = jsonobj.aaData[i][0];

newElement.value = jsonobj.aaData[i][0];




Here is the servlet code

<SERVLET NAME="Illuminator">


Illuminator Content Here


<PARAM NAME= "QueryTemplate" VALUE="{QueryTemplate}">

<PARAM NAME= "Stylesheet" VALUE="/XMII/CM/GUI/Common/XSLT/JQArrayFormat.xsl">

<PARAM NAME="Server" VALUE="{DataServer}">

<PARAM NAME= "Content-Type" VALUE="text/xml">

    Hi Shaji,

    If you want to assign the parameters to the query directly from applet/servlet tag, you can use

    <Param name="Param.1" value={SomeValue}>

    For js you can give, document.appletName.getQueryObject().serParam(index,value);

    Hope this helps.

    Best Regards,
