How to loop through list in jsp using for each and retrieve its properties

Hi, I am having trouble understanding how to retrieve properties out of a collection for display in my jsp page.

I am retrieving a list that is Iterable<company> then putting it into a list in my backing bean

here is the code that is in my backing bean to establish the company name

List<Company> companyFullName = Lists.newArrayList();
Iterable<Company>  owner = Lists.newArrayList();

owner = this.groups.owners().activeAsOf(new YearMonth(this.getMonth())).list();

		for(Company company: owner){

Open in new window

Here is the JSP snippet

<c:forEach items="${requestScope.companyFullName}" var="currentCompany" varStatus="loop">
<div class="companyAccordion">
	${currentCompany.codeName} - ${currentCompany.commonName}

							<div class="panelContent"></div>

Open in new window

This of course isn't working, but I'm not sure what exactly I need to do to get these properties out of the list to use in the header.

Could someone please shed some light on this? Thanks!
