Hi Sankha,

You should use the tags iterate and equal in the logic taglib to display a
variable number of rows and columns. An example of using the iterate tag is
in registration.jsp of the struts example application.

One point is that it gets the collection to iterate over from the session
and not from the form so there is no accessors in the form bean exept from
the current values of the box.
