Your bean:size tag looks wrong to me. Try something like this:
<bean:size id="countValue" name="proPep" property="counter"/> Number of Entries: <bean:write name="countValue"/>

I wasn't giving an example of a correctly formatted <bean:size> tag, I was simply making the statement that this tag can be used to get the size of a collection. Naturallly it has to have all the correct attributes in order to work.
