Struts Iterator Query

Struts 1.1.
Java 1.5
Tomcat 5.5.9


I'm really struggling with an embeded logic:iterate tag, and was hoping someone could point me in the right direction.

what I'm trying to achieve is the following

retrieve all products from by db for a selected subcategory.
display every product on the jsp, i.e. iterate through the 'ProductList' in the request.
for each product provide a selection box containing all it's size options (product_size_array property of the Product object)

I have the following but it isn't correct as no product sizes are being printed out, although the OUTER iterator is running fine as the name details for each product can be printed no problems.

<!--Iterate around all products in the ProductList LinkedHashSet-->
<logic:iterate id="Product" name="ProductsList" type="net.domain.Product" scope="request">

<!--For each product Iterate through it's product_size_array property which is a LinkedHashSet containing String objects-->
<select name="product_size" size="1">
<logic:iterate id="product_size" name="Product" property="product_size_array" type="java.lang.String">
<option value="<bean:write name='product_size'/>"><bean:write name="product_size"/></option>

I'd suggest using the <htmlptions> tag rather than <logic:iterate>. The <logicptions> tag renders all the options in a collection. Here is a link to the documentation.
