Why don't you initialize your fields inside your action or inside the
reset method of your form?

size="25" maxlength="256"></html:text>

Try something like:

<bean:define id="value" type="String" name="myLink" property="URL"/>

<html:text property="URL" value="<%= value %>" ... />

MM> When I try to use the Tag: <bean:write name="myLink" property="URL"/>  alone
(not in another Tag) then I got value I should get. So I see that the bean is in my Request.
But why doen't it work
MM> when I put the <bean:write> Tag into the <html:text> tag?
MM> I think this is a problem a lot of others also have, because you often need to initalize
the values of Form Elements with dynamic content.

MM> Can somebody help me?
