Try this.

In your Action:

    ArrayList months = new ArrayList();
    months.add(new LabelValueBean("January", 1);
    months.add(new LabelValueBean("Februrary", 2);
    request.setAttribute("months", months);

Inside your JSP:

    <html:form action="/yourActionMapping">
	<html:select property="yourFormProperty" multiple="true">
	    <html:options collection="months" property="value" labelProperty="label" />

Make your Form attribute a String[].
