Subject re: Getting ArrayList of objects from my form bean into my drop down list -> solution
Date Sat, 29 Nov 2003 00:22:09 GMT
What a good timing to see this post.  I was about to
do the same thing in the next day or two.

I have an ArrayList of JavaBean objects created from
accessing the database:

   return editors;

Obviously, each EditorBean object is the value of the
"user_name".  If I have this 
request.setAttribute( "EDITORS", editors );

How do I create a drop-down list?  Please comment the
way I tend to code:

<html:select property="editors" multiple="false">
  <bean:define id="EDITORS" name="??????"
  <html:options collection="EDITORS" property="?????" 

What should I do with those places I marked with the
question marks (?????)
