Despite my best efforts I have not been able to overcome this problem . . .
When loading one of my DropDown Boxes on my .jsp I get the error:
"org.apache.jasper.JasperException: No getter method available for property staffId for bean under name org.apache.struts.taglib.html.BEAN"
The odd thing about this is that I'm populating other dropdowns on the same .jsp page and they work fine . . . and they are coded very similar to this one so it's something particular to this dropdown . . .
