Right from the box, no.
You'll have to write a bean that reads your data from the database and put
it in two arrays (one for values, other for labels) or collections. Then,
you can use the <struts:select> and <struts:options> tags to create the
combobox and populate the option from the arrays.
The main idea of struts is to separate presentation (your combobox) from the
data, so the need for an intermediate bean (the controller) to manage them.
