Access static variable from form bean

Sorry if I'm reposting, but I couldn't find a similar problem.

I'm looking to access a static variable on my jsp that is contained in a form bean. I'm developing with Struts and haven't figured out how to do it on my own.

If it's got static elements it isn't a properly formed bean. Can you not just create an accessor and treat it like a non-static property?

I could, but I would want to have the fields at least a 'final'. Does this break the form bean standard?

Don't give the field a mutator.

Bear in mind that makes the field read-only. For everything.
