Hi
I am displaying items form data base in a jsp in a dropdown list using html:select and html ption tag. Now I have to display them in alphabetical order according to a property(legalBusinessName).Help me out in this. This is the piece of code..

<html:select
property="legalBusinessName" styleClass="select"
styleId="legalName" onchange="fetchUserDetails()">
<html ption value="-1">---select---</html ption>
<html ptions collection="accountNamesList" property="acctId"
labelProperty="legalBusinessName" />
</html:select></td>

If the data is coming from a database, then the easiest way to sort them is to do it when you pull them by using an "ORDER BY" clause.
