Just set the value of the field in the form model, either via binding or 
manually. I.e.:

form.getWidget().getWidget("field-id").value = "key2";
form.showForm("uri", { "list" : [
   { value: "key1", label: "One" }, { value: "key2", label: "Two" }
<fd:selection-list type="jxpath" list-path="list" value-path="value" 

This must work, as I do it all the time.
