Hi, guys:

I have a JSP page with a form of text boxes and dropdowns. Every time
when a user comes to this page, I will try to set form fields with values I
got from database which are put in session. I know we can use struts ActionFomrm to achieve this, but I cannot use Struts for this somehow. Is there any way I can do this using JavaScript or anything else?

regards,

A little JSTL should do the trick:

<input name="myTextField" type="text" value="<cut value="${myBean.myProperty}"/>">

or if you're using a JSP 2.0 web container, simply:

<input name="myTextField" type="text" value="${myBean.myProperty}">

Thanks for the reminder. I guess I can just use JSP expressions to populate form values.

Yup, no need to bring in things such as Struts when JSTL and JSP can do it for you.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
