I am using struts2 and jsp as development envionment.
I have a select tag on my jsp wherein i need to ,
1. Make a default selection depending on my bean/action class's property value.
if the property is 1 then i need to select Yes and if its 0 then i need to display No to the user.
2. Also when the form is submitted i need to pass the value in revese way to the bean i.e if selected is Yes pass 1 else 0.
i am able to do the 2nd one but not the first, i.e getting the default selection and displaying it.
does anybody know how to do it?

Thanks & Regards,

Just call an action that forwards to this JSP, and in that action, declare a property with the same name as the name used in the s:select tag and set it to 0 or 1. This will automatically cause the correct value to be selected when the JSP is displayed.
