I am working in struts and I have a scenario. I have 2 web pages. First page has a table which displays values from a database table like code, description. Description columns values are all hyperlinks and when clicked goes to the second page where code, description and other select box is there. All these values correspond from the first page. I want to populate that select box with the value for it from the database.
eg . 1st page code, description 1 Desc 1 2 Desc 2
on clicking desc 1 goes to 2nd page with text box for code and desc and a select box to assign category for that particular record.
How do i make the select box on load get selected with the value of the desc's category....
i can load the select box from the database but couldnt make it selected with a particular value..
In your Action class for retrieving the record to be displayed on clicking on a particular link, retrieve the data specific to the link, and copy it (the DTO) using BeanUtils.copyProperties() method to a form object which u will use on the page which displays the editable record.
