I have the following classes:
A bean class by name AssistanceRequest:


the action form:


the action class:

where arRqstArray is an array of AssistanceRequest objects i.e. bean objects.

On the jsp:


What I am trying to acheive is when I change anything on the "notes" property, I am not able to see the changed value in the action when I submit. Previously I used to get a null pointer exception so I have made the scope session. This solves the exception but that does not show the changed value of the notes.

If you put a code like


(see I have changed the name to actionform in the above snippet) it will work fine, because the "notes" property will be in the form. But if you put a bean inside a form and then try to change it, when you submit I am not able to store the changed property of the bean in the form.

What I mean is after submitting, in the action class:



The value printed shows the previous values of the property "notes" not the updated values from the jsp. So I have to store the changed value of the bean in the form.

Please help and thanks for your time.

Luke.
