you can use getRowData() method of datatable to access the selected row values in bean.

To be more precise I have a normal datatable (no radiobutton. no commandbutton, no commandlink) which displays data. I have a commandlink on the page. On clicking the datatable row the Row is highlighted. After that I click on the commandLink to perform action "edit". Edit action should display the form with the field from datatable row highlighted.
