Hi, guys:

I have a JSP page with a form of text boxes and dropdowns. Every time
when a user comes to this page, I will try to set form fields with values I
got from database which are put in session. I know we can use struts ActionFomrm to achieve this, but I cannot use Struts for this somehow. Is there any way I can do this using JavaScript or anything else?

regards,

A little JSTL should do the trick:

<input name="myTextField" type="text" value="<c:out value="${myBean.myProperty}"/>">

or if you're using a JSP 2.0 web container, simply:

<input name="myTextField" type="text" value="${myBean.myProperty}">

Thanks for the reminder. I guess I can just use JSP expressions to populate form values.

Yup, no need to bring in things such as Struts when JSTL and JSP can do it for you.
 
I will suppress my every urge. But not this shameless plug:
