    Default Re: Struts drop down

    In your Action class, instantiate a dao class which has a method that returns an ArrayList of LabelValueBean (look at api) of value='value of dropdown' and label='label of dropdown' and place the ArrayList of LabelValueBean into you session attribute.

    In your jsp, use <html:select> and <htmlptions> tag. In <htmlptions> tag, attribute property='value', labelProperty='label' and collections='name of session attribute'

    like this:

    <html:select property="tasks" styleId="tasks" style="width:500px;">
            <html:options collection="[I]name of session attribute[/I]" property="value" labelProperty="label"/>
