<html:radio property="xmlId"....

hi!

can anybody explain what  <html:radio property="xmlId" value="<%= key %>"/> <%= value %> <br/> does from the following code including how html:radio tag works in this code?
-----------------------------

      AssessTestXMLDAO testDAO = new AssessTestXMLDAO();
            String visitId=(String) request.getSession().getAttribute("visitId");
            LinkedHashMap tests = testDAO.selectTitlesAndOrder(visitId, "id");
            
            Iterator testIter = tests.keySet().iterator();
            
            while(testIter.hasNext()) {
               String key = (String) testIter.next();
                 String value = (String) tests.get(key);
      %>
            <html:radio property="xmlId" value="<%= key %>"/> <%= value %> <br/>
        <br>
      <%
-------------------------------

The above codes create radio box with the value taken from the map "test" key and use the map value as the label.
Once the iteration finish, it will produce a list of radio box.

Example: assume that the map "test" has the following value.
       tests.put("aa", "AA");
       tests.put("bb", "BB");

The output result will be the following:
       <input type="radio" name="xmlId" value="aa"> AA<br/>
       <input type="radio" name="xmlId" value="aaa"> BB <br/>

Another way of doing this is to store the map in form bean/page attribute, and loop throught using struts logic.
Example:
      <logic:notEmpty name="sampleForm" property="tests">
        <logic:iterate name="sampleForm" property="tests" id="row">
          <html:multibox property="xmlId"><bean:write name="row" property="value"/></html:multibox>
                <bean:write name="row" property="key"/>
        </logic:iterate>
      </logic:notEmpty>

sorry, should be the other way :p

          <html:multibox property="xmlId"><bean:write name="row" property="key"/></html:multibox>
          <bean:write name="row" property="value"/> <br />
