I've written a TLD for rendering dropdown in jsp page .
The tag takes Map with key / value in it for rendering the list.
optionally we can pass key / value to display as selected item.
here is the sample jsp code snipet :

the first one renders dropdown with some data selected and the other without selection.

The problem is, when I reset my form , the dropdown is with no selection , regardless of it contained some data initially or not.
I wanted to retain the data in case it was there .

here is the code for tld ..

what could be the possible reason ?
some help pls.

A form reset occurs on the client, so showing us the server-side code is not helpful. What HTML for the select element is being sent to the browser?
