I wrote a formBean which has getter setter for an ArrayList.
my getter is:

public ArrayList getLdapVOList() {
return ldapVOList;

setter is:

public void ArrayList(ArrayList list){
this.ldapVOList = list;

in JSP:

im setting this arraylist as hidden value.

<input type="hidden" name="ldapVOList" value="<c ut value="${userValidationServerForm.ldapVOList}"/>">

and while submitting the form I am getting this exception:

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Cannot invoke com.intruvert.ui.struts.configure.admin.nac.userValidationServer.UserValidationServerForm.setLdapVOList - argument type mismatch
at org.apache.commons.beanutils.PropertyUtilsBean.invokeMethod(PropertyUtilsBean.java:1778)

I am pretty sure that you cannot populate List properties directly. I can remember on a page where I had to store a list of id values. I added methods like getIdsAsString() and setIdsAsString(). I had code in the get method that returned the id values as a delimited String and in the set method that parsed the delimited string and populated the list.
