Now I am trying with different approach...lets I will give you detail..

My Bean:
package org.jbpm.identity;

import javax.faces.model.SelectItem;
import java.util.*;

public class SelectItemsBean {

protected List<SelectItem> plList = null;

public SelectItemsBean(){

}

public void setOptions(List<SelectItem> options) {
this.plList = options;
System.out.println("SelectItemsBeanClass = "+options);
}

public List<SelectItem> getOptions() {
return plList;
}
}

My faces.config.xml
<managed-bean>
<managed-bean-name>selectItemsBean</managed-bean-name>
<managed-bean-class>org.jbpm.identity.SelectItemsBean</managed-bean-class>
<managed-bean-scope>request</managed-bean-scope>
</managed-bean>

My UIform..
form.leaveapplication.xhtml
<h:selectOneMenu value="#{var['pl']}">
<f:selectItems value="#{selectItemsBean.plList}" />
</h:selectOneMenu>

Now I am getting error:
javax.servlet.ServletException: Expected a child component type of UISelectItem/UISelectItems for component type javax.faces.SelectOne(j_id214). Found null.
javax.faces.webapp.FacesServlet.service(FacesServlet.java:256)

root cause

two problems:

1.) your setter for select items is never actually getting called. You could probably fix the problem by calling that setter in your constructor.

2.) you are binding the value of f:selectItems to plList, but your getter is for options. You can either change the getter to getPlList, or you can change the value binding to selectItemsBean.options

Hope this helps
