The class which puts the bean object into the list must implement the SessionAware interceptor as show in the link given by sirah. Then you can put your list into the Map named session. which will be available in the jsp which is the result of the action. Once you put it like that the object will be available throughout the session.

1) The session object is created for you, you don't need to create a hashmap explicitly.
Use SessionAware interface in your action class to set the session variable in your action. It is assumed, in the class that implements SessionAware, that you are possibly "caching" the session so your methods can use it.

class MyAction implements SessionAware {      
      protected Map session;
      protected List list;

      public void setSession(Map session) { this.session = session; }

      public String method1() {
         // create list
         list = new ...
         // store it
         session.put("test", list);

      // method2.jsp can make use of list
      public String method2() {
          list = (List)session.get("test");


So the JSP code can use the "list" bean directly, or can refer to it with "session.list"
