I am trying to bind a multiple <select> in a JSP page to a Set collection in the command object.

The code works when I use the older version of Spring (i.e. without annotations), but some things do not work when I am using the newer version of Spring (i.e. with annotations).

The older code that does work:

Using it in the JSP page:

The JSP above works fine, because the the options of the <SELECT> show both the value and the label.

However the following newer initBinder does not fully work, because for the same JSP, the value of each option in the <SELECT> is empty (the HTML shows value=""). It does show the label.

Here is the code for Category:

Please help me understand why the initBinder does not fully work when I am using annotations.

Thank you for your time!
