Subject Re: Quick question about iterators & beans on a page
Date Fri, 15 Feb 2002 15:01:59 GMT
Being a bit slow off the mark with this iterator tag. I've found all sorts of examples and
some stuff in the archives here but it's confused me more than helped me. 

If I want a list displayed, no form, just data, the best place to get it is in a page context
bean, right? 

Second, how do I access the page context or the session from within that bean? 

I take it I don't want to create my own bespoke iterator tag, right?

Any help gratefully received.
