Hi!

I changed from the html:text to html:select and insert doesn’t work. When I view table, there are no record for it.
++++++++++++++++
<span class="data_heading"><bean:message key="label.flights"/>:</span>
<html:text property="flights"  styleClass="formfield" maxlength="10" size="10"/>

++++++++++++++++++
<span class="data_heading"><bean:message key="label.flights"/>:</span>
   <html:select property="flights" styleClass="formfield">
               <html:option value="">Select one</html:option>
            <html:option value="one">1</html:option>
            <html:option value="two">2</html:option>
               <html:option value="three">3</html:option>
         </html:select>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
++++++++++++++++++
However, something like this works.
<span class="data_heading"><bean:message key="label.assistance"/>:</span>&nbsp;
      <html:select property="assistance" styleClass="formfield">
               <html:option value="">Select one</html:option>
            <html:option value="Independent">Independent</html:option>
            <html:option value="Supervision">Supervision</html:option>
               <html:option value="Contact">Contact guard</html:option>
         </html:select>

any idea?

What methods do you have for getFlights and setFlights in your form bean...

And how do they differ from getAssistance and setAssistance?

As far as I can see, your code should be ok...

I thought it should be ok, but it doesn't work for database part...
+++++++++

      public String getFlights() {
            return flights;
      }
      /**
       * @param flights The flights to set.
       */
      public void setFlights(String flights) {
            this.flights = flights;

++++++++++++

      public String getAssistance() {
            return assistance;
      }
      /**
       * @param assistance The assistance to set.
       */
      public void setAssistance(String assistance) {
            this.assistance = assistance;

That should work...

Are you sure the field in the database hasn't changed?  Or the database code itself?

Remember, you are now sending "one", "two" or "three", wheras you may have been expecting "1", "2", "3" before...

I'd print out the value before you add it to the database...  Then if that is null, I'd trace back through your code from database to ActionForm, printing out the value of that field as you go...you should see the point that it becomes null then, and fix the code...
