I am working on a project using Struts2 and Hibernate. After employees successfully log on, they will be brought to a new page displaying an event list. This list will be a dropdown select list. I have successfully written and tested my code for logon part, but when I add the second jsp page with <s:select> tag, they show me the following exception:

message tag 'select', field 'list', name 'yourEvent': The requested list key 'events' could not be resolved as a collection/array/map/enumeration/iterator type. Example: people or people.{name} - [unknown location]

description The server encountered an internal error that prevented it from fulfilling this request.

exception

The following is my MemberScreen.jsp with <s:select> tag inside:



The following is my action code:



The following is my code for the Event Entity



The following is my Hibernate data processing code;



The following code is my struts.xml:



The following is hibernate config:



For completeness, I also post my logon.jsp and its action codes here:











Can any Struts2 expert tell me what's wrong is my code so that I cannot populate data from database into my select dropdown list in MemberScreen.jsp? Thank you for your time and help.

I found the problem of my code. I misspelled one field in Event.java. After changing the name of this field, List<Event> isn't null any more, but my select dropdown list stills runs wrong. So my strategy of populating the select list is incorrect. I now have figured out how to do it. If you are interested in it, let me know.
