Hi Experts,

This apprently gives syntax error and it is the following line.(If I switch to any string, it works.)

value="<bean:write name="providerListData" property="prnme" />"

I need to display prnme and store prnme, so value attribute and inside of option should be the same. This is what I did.

from java code
if(session.getAttribute("providerList") != null)

from jsp file
<logic:present name="providerList">
     <logic:iterate id="providerListData" name="providerList" >
         <logic:present name="providerListData">
            <html:option value="<bean:write name="providerListData" property="prnme" />">
                  <bean:write name="providerListData" property="prnme" />

What is wrong with this anyway?

You *can't* mix up two struts tags like that. It just won't work.

You'll either have to use JSTL tag or a scriptlet to do that.

Better still, use the HTML tag with EL support from struts.

Then, you can do something like this:


Also, use the <html:options> tag within a <html:select> tag as sivapsk suggested.
