You can assign action to htmlMenuItemSub/htmlMenuItem components.
Actually i need to get the value for the selected menuItem. for eg: if i have (Bozho,Skaffman,anandhinaveen) in MenuItem. And if i have selected Bozho item from the dropDownMenu, i need to get the value of the menuItem in the backing bean as Bozho. so that i can proceed further with that value..
You do not need any additional supports, bindings and so on. Just pass parameter using a4j:actionparam or f:param and get it from request map in your item action or listener
