This week's book giveaway is in the General Computing forum. We're giving away four copies of Arduino in Action and have Martin Evans, Joshua Noble, and Jordan Hochenbaum on-line! See this thread for details.
Is this your full jsp file? If so you are missing your opening <html:select> tag (and several table tags). I don't understand...you say the page is working fine and they you say you get an error at html:select. I suggest posting more of your jsp, your action mapping and maybe your action code. Do you define a scope for you form?
