optionsCollection syntax trouble

I am trying to populate an html:select with a collection from the action class. In my action class I populate an ArrayList with LabelValueBeans. I then do:
return mapping.findForward("success");//which is back to the same page
My jsp:
<htmlptionsCollection name="selectForm" property="namesOptions"/>
My struts-config:
<form-property name="namesOptions" type="java.util.Collection" />
What am I doing wrong, how can I fix it?

Here is how I dispay my collections in the jsp

The property of the select tag is corresponds to name select element on the form. The collection parm corresponds to the name of the collection. The two properties are from the bean that creates my collection. It just pulls them right in.
