I am new to Struts
I have the following code:

Code is executing correctly,but I dont get how selected option is getting selected based on the code above. I have a question about SELECTED value in HTML Select. How does SELECTED gets selected ( selected="selected" as appears on html)

Thank you in advance.

There aren't many rules that you need to worry about here on the Ranch, but one that we take very seriously regards the use of proper names. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

I guess, your question is " How Struts TLD works?"

If you say <html:select multiple="true">, container calls the TLD class, and according to the attribute values and child elements you give, it produces equivalent HTML output in the place you called.

It seems like struts not supporting this attribute.

You can try by using below tag with iteration,

<htmlption key="" value="" selected>blah</htmlption>
I agree. Here's the link:
