In my example below, i have an inquiry entity that has a country drop down. So in my action class i have a factory method that retrieves all countries and outjects to event scope to be called in my selectOneMenu.

InquiryAction class:

    @Factory(value = "countriesList", scope = ScopeType.EVENT)  
     public List<Country> getCountriesList() {  
     return entityManager.createNamedQuery("Country.findAll").getResultList();  


<s:decorate id="countryField" template="layout/edit.xhtml">
                <ui:define name="label">Country</ui:define>
                <h:selectOneMenu id="country" value="#{newInquiry.address.countryCode}" required="true">
<s:selectItems var="_country" value="#{countriesList}"
label="#{_country.countryName}" noSelectionLabel="-- Select --"/>
