Help needed with Spring binding and <form:select>

I'm trying to wrap my head on this but here is my scenario.

I have a class object called MovieTimeSlot which stores all movie show times. Which contains a movie object, an id, and timestamp of the showdate/time.

The Movie object looks like this:

I then have my controller, AdminTimeslotController, below is a snippet

My trouble is the jsp page setSchedule. I don't know how to use <form:select> to display the list of movies as an option. This is what I have so far:

I'm receiving an error: Nested Exception is java.lang.IllegalStateException: Neither BindingResult nor plain target object for bean name 'moveTimeslot' available as request attribute

I'm confused how to list the movies in the list. Or, perhaps I'm not thinking this out efficiently and perhaps my workflow needs to be revised.

I think you need to instantiate a form object and put it into the model with name "movieTimeslot" to clear the error "Neither BindingResult nor plain target object ..."

Also, try using "items", "itemValue" and "itemLabel" attributes of SelectTag to display your movie list:

Sorry, I'm not my office to test if the code is syntactically correct.
