I called a servlet through ajax call on widow.load() event ..But when i want to show the value got after success of ajax call in alert box it is showing [object XMLDocument] i dont know why .this is the first time i am using ajax call.

Here is my ajax call code...`

$(window).load(function() { $.ajax({ type: 'GET', url: 'Sites', datatype:'text', success: function(data) { alert(data); debugger; var city=data; for(var i in city) { output ='<input type="checkbox" id="'+city[i]+'" name="'+city[i]+'" value="'+city[i]+'" />'+city[i]+'<br />' } console.log(output) } }); });

And here is my servlet code from where i sending data in arraylist formate.

PrintWriter out = response.getWriter(); ArrayList calltype = new ArrayList(); try { String strQuery = ""; ResultSet rs = null; conexion conexiondb = new conexion(); conexiondb.Conectar(); strQuery = "Select * from sites"; rs = conexiondb.Consulta(strQuery); while (rs.next()) { String toc = rs.getString("sites"); calltype.add(toc); } out.print(calltype); System.out.println(calltype); out.close(); } catch (Exception e) { // display stack trace in the browser System.out.println(e); }

Any help on this will be appreciated .. Thanks in advance..


@Adi what are the values you are receiving in data, like [mumbai,chennai]? Store this values in javascript array variable. Like

var values = []; values = data;

Then you can use jquery .each() <a href="http://api.jquery.com/jQuery.each/" rel="nofollow">jQuery each function</a> to iterate through each cities.

$.each(values, function( index, value ) { alert( index + ": " + value ); });

I haven't checked this code. Please let me know if this helps.
