I posted it in the wrong forum, so repeating it here..

Struts 1

In the documentation, the "name" inside a tag is mentioned to be the name of the bean whose property has to be printed. If the property isn't mentioned, the value of the bean itself is printed. But if I set an attribute in the Action class like :

and in the JSP say :

I get "hello" even though "dda" is not the name of any bean. Why does that happen ? And what is meant by "bean itself is printed" ? Is its object's hashcode rendered ?
