Populating ActionForm

Hi there,
I'm new to struts so excuse me if this seems like a simple question.
I have a search page (linked to an ActionForm) which returns a jsp with the search results. All the search results have a link, which points to an Action class, passing the id of the search result as a parameter. So far so good.
When I click on any search result, the Action gets the data from the database, populates the ActionForm and forwards to the jsp. It seems that the jsp is not finding the ActionForm data, so the page remains empty. What am I doing wrong?
Cheers,
Kris.

Hi Christian !
Have you sent the ActionForm back to the jsp via setAttribute() ? Like this :

request.setAttribute(mapping.getAttribute(), yourForm);
// Forward to the appropriate View
return (mapping.findForward(target));
I hope it helps...
Cheers !
