thanks for your answer.

the point is:

1) beanContainer was put into session by another jsp previously.

2)I need to fetch his values, display them in a form, let the user
modifying them.

3) Finally, I have to post data to an action which will make some stuff
and update beanContainer into session.

I will try this solution, even if, as I told you before, I'm dealing with
a pre-existent bean the property of which I need to read/modify is a

what I'm trying to realize is accessing a Collection-typed property of a
session scope bean, visualize it to the user, let the user modifying it
and finally submitting the changes the struts way (using a form-bean as
trait d'union between my jsp and the controller) and update the bean in
I'm looking for a elegant procedure to make it, ie I'd like to use
DynaActionForms. But if that isn't possible I'm ready to define a form of
my own.
But I need first to understand if and how the session beanContainer's
listaDanneggiati property is mapped onto the form-bean defined into my
struts-config.xml. My suspect is that they are two different objects and
that they will never be managed automatically. Maybe I should define a
form which
1) populates an ArrayList whith that extracted from session

2) use it to make stuff

3) finally update the form in session with data submitted by the user
