Subject Re: Passing sitemap parameters between actions
Date Fri, 21 Jun 2002 19:17:28 GMT
The map object is destroyed when the authenticator action is complete
so your only option is to copy the values somewhere before the action
completes.  Three places come to mind:  the parent parameter map,
the request parameters and the session (assuming you have a
session).   I know of SessionPropagatorAction to push values to 
the session but you'll have to brew your own action if you choose to
copy to the parent map or the request parameter list.  I'm not endorsing
any of these options as a good design - just pointing out what's possible.

As you already showed, nesting the transformer in the action works
and is the preferred way - try refactoring your sitemap if you can.

Cheers
