Hi All,

I have 2 collections.
First collection is a collection of Schedule with following attributes.
Schedule = {schedule_id,job_id,client_id}
Another collection is a collection of Job with the following attributes.
Job = {job_id,job_name}

Now in the schedule list page i want to display the job_name for the corresponding job_id of the Schedule in the first collection

that is my list page is as follows

ScheduleName JobName
<name> <name>

How do i accomplish this using struts tag-libs in my JSP.

Ideally, you should populate your bean in your action to contain the necessary information without having to cross reference the two lists in the jsp. For example, your bean can be a collection of ScheduleJobClient POJO DTOs that looks like this:

That way you can iterate over the ScheduleJobClient list in your bean and display the job name for each schedule.
