I am using a <html:hidden> tag in my jsp view,itis given below,
<b><html:hidden property="clientid" value="<%=client_iden%>"/></b>
the attribute <b>value</b> I obtain by using getParameter. But the property does not get set in the bean unless I use the following code,
<b><html:hidden property="clientid" />
<html:hidden property="clientid" value="<%=client_iden%>"/>
</b>

I just figured out the above code by trial and error. Why is it that I have to use <b><html:hidden property="clientid" /></b> for the setClientid()property to work.


I am confused please help.
