Hello Royal,

Following JSP code snippet will help you in creating a dynamic dropdown list.
<%@ taglib prefix="sql" uri="" %>
<sql:query var="states">
<form name="frmMain" id="frmMain" method="post" action="some.jsp">
    <select id="lstSelect" name="lstSelect" multiple size="10">
        <option value="SELECT">Select State</option>
<c:forEach var="state" items="${states.rows}">
        <option value="<c:out value="${state.state_code}"/>">
            <c:out value="${state.state_name}"/&gt;
