Howto create array of String "structures" in jsp?

This is probably very elementary, but how would I create an arrary of structures in jsp? Here's the C version of what I want:

typedef struct {
    char     *abbrev;
    char     *name;
} STATES ;

STATES states = {"AL","Alabama", ... };

states[0].name // references "Alabama"

I don't want to create any external class files, etc.

you could create a 2d array

String[][] states = new String[][] { {"AL", "Alabama"}, "{"XX", "Mars"}};

objects - thanks, I used your solution and it was simple. I thought there might be something a bit more elegant than a 2-D array, but I suppose that also means far more complex.

basav_com - thanks for the links, although I didn't see any actual code on the HashMap list, but maybe I didn't look hard enough.
