Textarea question

I have a referenceData method in my controller in springframework. the statement is mentioned below in the code tags which ii am using in my jsp page to output the value from the DB. When i run my JSP page it outputs empty in the textarea. I was able to output the list and the exact value is coming out from the DB. Why is it not outputting in my textArea ?

Secondly instead of this :-

<TEXTAREA rows="6" cols="50"

if i do this :-

<input type="text"

I can see the value but with Textarea it is not working. Any input ?
<c:forEach items="${information}" var="info">
<tr>	
<td  align = "left"><b>Notes</FONT></b></td>
<td colspan="3" align = "left">
<spring:bind path="user.notes">
	<TEXTAREA rows="6" cols="50"
	name='<c:out value="${status.expression}"/>'
	value='<c:out value="${info.notes}"/>'>
</TEXTAREA>
	<span><font color="red"><c:out
	value="${status.errorMessage}" />
	</font>
	</span>
</spring:bind>
</td>
</tr>
</c:forEach>

Text area doesn;t have value attribute. try below,

<TEXTAREA rows="6" cols="50"
        name='<c:out value="${status.expression}"/>'>
        <c:out value="${info.notes}"/>
</TEXTAREA>

Micheal_Male,

For a value in a text area the contents or value needs to be in between the textarea tags.  There is no value attribute in the textarea tag.

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.

An example of this using your code is below.
bol

<TEXTAREA rows="6" cols="50"
	name='<c:out value="${status.expression}"/>'>
<c:out value="${info.notes}"/>'
</TEXTAREA>

Since I don't know that server script I want to show what the resulting html source (i.e. the browser source) should look like.  If the value is "This is the value" then the html tag would be like ...
<textarea rows="6" cols="50" name="textarename">This is the value</textarea>
