My view is a jsp page which has a table whose fields are text boxes. each cell in the table is a text box. now i want present them with an initial value that i have retrieved from data base.

can i have

<html:text property="author" value= <bean:write id="" property="">

the bean tag is populated by a collection that is available in my actionform.

my code is working with
<input type=text value="<bean:write name='bookForm' property='author' />">

please tell me can i have the same with <html:text>

Hi , if your form elements are associate with bean, then value of those elements will be populated directly. you dont have to specify the value.
You just have to use:
<html:form action="someaction" name="formbean">
<html:text property="propname"/>
</html:form>

In this situation, you would want to use "indexed properties". Here is a link explaining how indexed properties work. Also see this thread.

Thanks Shilpa and merill.

But, in this

<html:form action="someaction" name="formbean">
<html:text property="propname"/>
</html:form>

the <html:form> tag does not have "name" attribute.
this is resolved by the <logic:iterate name="formbean">
