I have a Address bean and I want to create the fields based on this
Address getters/setters for below fields

street
city
state
zip
country

here is my form declaration.

<form-property name="address" type="com.mycompany.Address"/>

How to use this info to create my fields in my jsp page dynamically?

If you just want to display the fields, use the "dot" notation to do so. Example:

If you're looking for a way to automatically figure out what properties the bean has and display them all, there's no facility in Struts to do that. It could be done, but you'd have to do most of the coding yourself. You may want to check out what utilities are available in the Apache Commons BeanUtils project.
