HTML5 database queries

I am developing a HTML5 based application. I need to process two queries concurrently, one inside another. Pseudo code attached below:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. function main() {
  2. db.transaction( function (transaction) { transaction.executeSql(getDeptQuery, [bind1,bind2],processDepartments, errorHandler); } ); } function processDepartments(transaction, results) { for (var j=0; j
  3. { temp+= ""+results.rows.item(j).dept+"";
  4. transaction.executeSql(getEmpQuery,[bindDept],processEmployees, errorHandler);
  5. } document.getElementById('mydata').innerHTML +=temp; } function processEmployees(transaction, results1) { for (var j=0; j
  6. {
  7. temp+= ""+results1.rows.item(j).empname+"";
  8. } document.getElementById('mydata').innerHTML +=temp;
  9. }
Can someone help me with the correct syntax for achieving this.

you are aware that JavaScript canít access databases?

In HTML5 it can, but I don't know if browsers had implemented this API yet, I haven't tried it either. Anyways, from what I've read, the dbs are stored on the client side only, what seems logical, since a client side connection to a remote db is terribly insecure.
If you want to store data locally on the client's browser but want to use something better, with more granular lever of control, and more persistent than cookies, you can use DOM Storage (https://developer.mozilla.org/en/DOM/Storage)

The code krishnaneeraja provided is from palm webOS, I don't think that will work in a regular browser.
