Please does anyone know how to use the value attribute of the file tag.

I'm trying to do initialize the file tag if a file was previously uploaded.

actually you don't initialize value attribute of <s:file /> tag.
It is because the value determines the file path on clients system which is never sent to you.
Even if somehow you know it, even then what happens if file was removed from that location.

Hence, if you will need a work around to this by displaying list of uploaded files upon page.
