Hi

I have a scenario in which there are multiple checkboxes in the same page belonging to one logical entity(Say Hobbies with multiple options given to choose in the form of Checkbox Group).

Now in my ActionForm(Bean)i am using one get and set method with String[] as dataType.

So when the user selects multiple hobbies and clicks Submit, values gets filled properly . But during the modification scenario (like i set the hobbies to the form bean), the appropriate hobbies are not getting selected automatically though i used html:checkbox tag.

Is it that checkbox tag is not handling for Array of Values ??
