It sounds like you have your action's 'input' property pointing directly 
at the JSP. Your best bet is to have two action mappings, one for 
displaying the form and one for processing it on submission. Then set 
the second mapping's 'input' to point to the first mapping. Now, 
whenever the form is displayed -- either initially, or following 
validation errors -- the form-display action will be called, giving you 
a place to load the list into the form.
