Here is the issue:

I am using JSTL tag to populate the html:select

<html ption value="">Select partner</html ption>
<c:forEach items="${abc}" var="p">

<html ption value="${}" >${}</html ption>

where is abc is a list.

this is working fine.

now the issue is in another Edit page I am using the same above code and I need to pre select the option which user has selected in Add page.

The id above is stored in another bean which is accessible in the same jsp....but some how i am not getting the idea to combine the value from bean and jstl tag to pre select the option.

Please help if some body know the solution or have any idea....

may be i should have read the struts documentation for html tag before posting this query.

i found the solution right after posting this question.....

just gave the name of the bean in html:select and it did the magic :-)

thanks guys....hope this will help someone...probably that will make this posting worth :-)

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays...
