I ve one jsp . And in this I have two submit buttons. If I code in a manner like this-
<input type = "submit" name = "method"
value ="<bean:message key =""/>"> <!-- [ = name]-->
<input type = "submit" name = "method"
value ="<bean:message key ="button.address"/>"><!--[button.address=address ]-->
</input>. Then the two button labels are "name" nad "address". But if I code
<html:submit property ="method"> <bean:message key="">.. . Then I get the button labels as "name" and "name adress". Why this is happening.How this can be prevented?

Struts tags have a hard time dealing with two elements with the same property name. In this example, both buttons have a property name of "method".

Since it seems to work fine using regular HTML tags, I'd suggest just using the regular HTML tags.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
