There isn't a direct equivalent to <options/>'s name/property attributes 
for <bean:write/> (I think that's what you are asking for?) You'll need 
to write the appropriate value from your LabelValueBean yourself. The 
easiest way would be to add a method, Map getLabelMap(), to your bean 
which returns an status to label map. Then, in your dosplayStudents.jsp, 
you can write the label value with


or something like

   <bean:write name="labelBean" property="labelMap['<% 

If that doesn't get you going, post your source code so I can see what 
you have to work with.
