Request parameter

I have these two tags:
<bean arameter name="street" id="mystreet" value="blabla" />
<html:text property="street_field" size="40" maxlength="40" value="<%= mystreet %>" />
When I call my Action like:, the field will be filled with the value "hellostreet".
When I call my Action like:, the field will be filled with the value "blabla" because I did not pass any parameter and then the default value will be used.
When I pass the parameter "street" ober a request holder, I can print it out with <bean:write name="street" scope="request" /> but the textfield is not filled.
Any help?
Thanks! Florian

I understand what you are trying to do, but wouldn't this logic be more suited to the Form Bean or other business logic-based process rather than doing it directly in your JSP?
Your JSP should just read the value and display it, not try to manipulate it...
I agree. Here's the link:
