I'm a beginner for Struts

I need to add a date field to the JSP form.

I do NOT know how to add a calendar and populate the selected date from to the form?

eg.where  the calendar image is clicked, it pops up the calendar and allows the user to select the date. After, the selected date is populated to the date field.

I know this is a common funtionality, but i just dont know what to do?

Notes I add the struts framework to the existing old jsp/servlet application.
Does Struts provide a feature for calendar?

If you are using Struts 2 then yes there's a tag for date picker <s:datepicker>.

If you are using Struts 1 then you need to add the date picker script.
The following are some of the date picker sample code, you can find more from google.

Check the struts configuration xml, it will specify whether refering to 1.x dtd or 2.x dtd file.
