I have a problem with struts1.2 using html:select tags i'm getting

org.apache.jasper.JasperException: Cannot find bean under name marketForm
error.
I have defined this in the struts-config.xml file
<form-beans>
<form-bean name="marketForm" type="com.chl.form.MarketForm" />
</form-beans>

my jsp code is this
<html:select property="marketId" styleClass="inputtext" name="marketForm" >
<html ptions collection="marketSession" property="marketId" labelProperty="marketId" />
</html:select>

i was trying this for past 2 days couldn't figure it out, but in struts 1.1 it works fine, what did i do wrong.

if your html:select is already inside an html:form, which should be mapped to the action that is mapped to your form-bean already, why declare the 'name' attribute at all for the html:select?

Well the problem is the action form is different bean object, i'm overiding the html select with diff bean object. Basically i'm trying to re-use the session objects in every single drop down.
Accoring the docs you can do it, however mine works only if the form action object mathces with the select object bean.
Anyway thanks for the reply. Hope i'll figure this out soon.

Found the soultion
go to http://struts.apache.org/faqs/newbie.html#noForm
and check this section
Can I use other beans or hashmaps with ActionForms?

Thanks anyway for the help.
