I know this is more html than jsp, but I'm executing it in a jsp.  Can I assign an array to the value of an option?

Like this:

<SELECT><OPTION VALUE=array[]>

You can't assign an array to the value of option.
What you can do is extract all the value and put a delimeter like comma(,) or pipe(|) in between.

Here is the sample code:

<option value="
<% for (int i = 0; i < array.length; i++) { %>
  <%=array[i] + "|"%>  
<% } %>
