This week's book giveaway is in the Mac OS forum. We're giving away four copies of a choice of "Take Control of Upgrading to Yosemite" or "Take Control of Automating Your Mac" and have Joe Kissell 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?
