i am displaying the address and first name and suburb and poscode etc. Display no problem. The suburb is in the drop list using <html:select tag.

rupin rupin,
Welcome to JavaRanch!

We're pleased to have you here with us in the JSP forum, but there are a few rules that need to be followed, and one is that proper names are required. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

You can change it here

Also, this:
The suburb is in the drop list using <html:select tag.

indicates that you are developing this with Struts.

I'm going to move this to our Struts forum where the Struts gurus hang out.

If your ActionForm is in request scope, you need to make sure that the address object gets instantiated either in the form bean's reset() method or in the no-args constructor. Remember, request scope only lasts for one request, so when the form is submitted, Struts has to create a new instance of the form bean.

I agree. Here's the link:
