Dear friends,

When i submit a JSP page i get the following weird exception:

java.lang.ClassCastException: java.lang.String incompatible with org.apache.struts.action.ActionForm

I checked and double-checked the struts-config.xml file. All the entries are perfect. The action mappings everything are correct.

The following code is in my JSP an <html:form>, which displays a drop-down box from which user will select a value. getList(this) is a javascript which contains no errors.

onsubmit i call another action and during this time, after selecting a value from the drop down i get the above exception. The form bean variables have matching data types.

Kindly provide your help.
