Hi Nanda,

what you can do when you click the Edit is (I assume you have entered the some value into some field to retrieve the record from the database) get the corresponding records from the database and populate the actionForm and return back to the jsp, your fields will be filled the values of that specific record.

I agree. Here's the link:
