Hi ,
Just clear with the syntax.....
ArrayList itself a collection.... just check this..
yourjsp
--------
<html:select property="country" onChange="countryChange(createLoginAccForm)">
          <html:options  collection="countryList" property="value" labelProperty="label" />
        </html:select>

yourAction class
----------------
ArrayList arrayListL = (ArrayList) yourDAO.loadCountryList();


yourDAO class
-----------
public ArrayList loadCountryList() throws NamingException, SQLException {
            String countryCodeSQL = "select objid,country_cd ,country_name from country";

            ArrayList arrayList = new ArrayList();
            Connection conn = null;
            Statement stmt = null;
            ResultSet rs = null;

            String countryCode = null;
            String countryName = null;
            logger.debug("countryCodeSQL query:" + countryCodeSQL);

            try {
                  conn = DBUtils.getInstance().getConnection();
                  stmt = conn.createStatement();

                  stmt.execute(countryCodeSQL);
                  rs = stmt.getResultSet();

                  while (rs.next()) {
                        int objid = rs.getInt(1);
                        countryCode = rs.getString(2);
                        countryName = rs.getString(3);

                        arrayList.add(new KeyValueBean(objid, countryName));

                  }

            } catch (SQLException e) {
                  throw e;
            } finally {
                  try {
                        if (rs != null)
                              rs.close();
                  } catch (Exception e) {
                  }
                  try {
                        if (stmt != null)
                              stmt.close();
                  } catch (Exception e) {
                  }
                  try {
                        if (conn != null)
                              conn.close();
                  } catch (Exception e) {
                  }
            }
            return arrayList;
      }

Hope this will help
