How do I make dynamic lists of Struts 2 form elements?

I can display my lists of form objects using Struts 2. I am having problems with the JSP syntax to retrieve data using a ModelDriven object. You can see in code snippet the idea of what I am trying to do.  I have a dynamic list of data and I need to get back one or more data members from each individual object in the list.
<s:iterator value="myList" status="status">			

	<s:textfield id="%{myList[#status.index].description" />

	<s:textfield id="%{myList[#status.index].quantity" />


class MyRowItem


  private String description;

  private Integer quantity;

  // Assume getters/setters


class MyModel


  private List<MyRowItem> myList;

  // Assume getters/setters and proper initialization of class

Found the solution on my own. Below is an example of list of parts.  2 data members will be changed in the form.  One is a dropdown and the other is a textfield.
<s:iterator id="partList"  status="status">

	<s:select list="%{shippingCarrier}" headerKey="-1"

		headerValue="Select One" listKey="id" listValue="descr"
