I am using struts framework and in the jsp I am having display table like below.

<display:table id="data" name="deptUsers" requestURI="/"
pagesize="10" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="2" decorator="com.krishct.efiler.user.documents.DownloadDecorator">
<display:column property="branch" title="Branch" sortable="true" style="text-align:center;" />
<display:column property="loginId" title="User Name"sortable="true" style="text-align:center;" />
<display:column title="View" style="text-align:center;">
<html:checkbox name="deptUsers" property="view" />
<display:column title="Review" style="text-align:center;">
<html:checkbox name="deptUsers" property="review" />

But this is not working.

I want the checkboxes get selected if the value from the database is true and others unchecked and if I select some other check boxes in different pages of the table and submit them they should be stored in database.

How to achieve this please guide me.

In selectUser() JS function, you can have logic for maintain the selected checkbox list. On submit form, the selected checkbox list(means uniqueid list) can be set in hidden field and obtain in action class. Below are the code snippets
