Wanting to Displaying Empty Data on Initial Search Page

I have a UI that displays a search form. The application is written using struts, adf and JDeveloper10.1.2 but is being migrated to 10.1.3.1. One column on the form is the labels and the other consists of text boxes. The form basically represents a row in a DB table that is defined in a UIModel.xml file. When I bring up the form, I always get all the text boxes prefilled out with data coming from the first row of the DB table. Does anyone know how to prevent this from happening? I basically want the form's text boxes to be empty when the user initially displays this form.

Here are some definitions from struts-config.xml:

<form-bean name="DataForm" type="oracle.adf.controller.v2.struts.forms.BindingContainerActionForm"/> <action path="/findAliasAction" className="oracle.adf.controller.v2.struts.actions.DataActionMapping" type="oracle.adf.controller.v2.struts.actions.DataAction" name="DataForm"> <set-property property="v1ActionClass" value="gov.llnl.oln.util.view.OlnDataForwardAction"/> <forward name="success" path="/findAlias.do"/> </action> <action path="/findAlias" className="oracle.adf.controller.v2.struts.actions.DataActionMapping" type="oracle.adf.controller.v2.struts.actions.DataForwardAction" name="DataForm" parameter="/findAlias.jsp"> <forward name="Execute" path="/aliasResultsAction.do"/> </action> Here is a snippet from findAlias.jsp: <%@ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/struts-bean.tld" prefix="bean"%> <%@ taglib uri="http://java.sun.com/jstl/core" prefix="c"%> <%@ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/struts-html.tld" prefix="html"%> <%@ page contentType="text/html;charset=windows-1252"%> <html> <head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252"> <title>Find Alias</title> </head> <body>

<html:errors/> <html:form action="/findAlias.do" scope="page"> <input type="hidden" name="<c ut value='${bindings.statetokenid}'/>" value="<c ut value='${bindings.statetoken}'/>"/> <input type="hidden" name="sid" value="<c ut value='${requestScope.sid}'/>"/> <input type="hidden" name="sk" value="<c ut value='${requestScope.sk}'/>"/> <table border="0" width="100%" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="0"> <tr> <td> <c ut value="${bindings['Alias1'].label}"/> </td> <td> <html:text property="Alias1"/> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <c ut value="${bindings['EmailName'].label}"/> </td> <td> <html:text property="EmailName"/> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <c ut value="${bindings['AliasType'].label}"/> </td> <td> <html:text property="AliasType"/> </td> </tr> . . . . <tr> <td> <c ut value="${bindings['LastChangeOun'].label}"/> </td> <td> <html:text property="LastChangeOun"/> </td> </tr> </table>
<c ut value="${bindings.editingMode}"/>

<input type="submit" name="event_Execute" value="Find" ><c ut value="${bindings.Execute.enabledString}" />/> </html:form> </body> </html>
