I am working on a JSP which uses an action form and <logic:iterate to iterate through the records. Action form looks like this.

public class searchNotifForm extends ActionForm{

ArrayList notifications;

public void setNotifications(ArrayList notifications){
this.notifications = notifications;

public ArrayList getNotifications(){
return this.notifications ;

In JSP I am looping through the list using <logic:iterate> and displaying the records.

<logic:iterate id="notification" name="searchNotifForm" property="notifications" type="NotificationDisplayObject">
<td class="bodyCopy" width="10%" align="center">
<html:ext styleClass="button" name="notification" property="brokerName" />
<td class="bodyCopy" width="10%" align="center">
<html:checkbox name="notification" property="email"/>

The issue is the checkbox does not persist state in the object. Am I missing something here..

You need to use multibox instead of a checkbox. It returns an String[].

So for your case it would be:
<html:multibox property="email">

And the form:
private String[] email;
and getter and setter for email. You just loop through the String[] to check the values!

hope this helps.
