Subject [jira] Created: (WW-2842) Wildcards in namespace maps url values to controller parameters
Date Sun, 19 Oct 2008 18:01:37 GMT
Wildcards in namespace maps url values to controller parameters
---------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: WW-2842
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/struts/browse/WW-2842
             Project: Struts 2
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Plugin - REST
            Reporter: Leonard Broman
            Priority: Minor


Implement wildcard functionality in namespace declaration to be able to map URL values to
controller properties, or more appropriately, push them to the value stack.

This has been discussed lightly on the user mailing list and there is a short notice on the
jroller blog by Don Brown http://www.jroller.com/mrdon/entry/struts_2_rest_todos .

Simple example:

We may want to map a nice and clean url: GET /report/lbroman/2008/january
To a ReportController where the values lbroman, 2008, january will be set on properties on
the Controller.
Using the @Namespace annotation, a namespace declaration like "/report/{user}/{year}/{month}"
will use the wildcard mapping to map "lbroman", "2008", "january" to setUser(), setYear()
and setMonth() respectively.

Note that this overrides the default setId() for the first parameter.
