This code was compiling and running in Orion just fine, however, when trying to access
this page in JBoss, I get the following error:

An error occurred at line: 1,745 in the jsp file: /insurance/jsp/selectTenderType.jsp
| Generated servlet error:
| The method setValue(String) in the type OptionTag is not applicable for the arguments (int)

Try changing <%=departmentId%> to <%= (new Integer(departmentId)).toString%>. That way the argument is a String instead of an integer.
