if you have your array values are coming from your action (as a collection, arraylist, map, etc.), iterate through the them using logic:iterate or c:forEach INSIDE the <script...> tag to construct the js arrays then proceed with the js business as usual.

The org.apache.struts.taglib.html.JavascriptValidatorTag would not be useful here. It's purpose is to render javascript created by the validator.
