Subject Re: Struts 1.1 b1 and how to set form-property initial value for java.util.List
Date Thu, 25 Apr 2002 11:44:16 GMT
I don't really think the framework is setup to do what you want it to do. 
The "initial" attribute is really designed to be a primitive. The 
ConvertUtils "convert" method is not really capable of doing what you want 
it to do. You'll probably have to extend the FormPropertyConfig class and 
override the initial() method and a few other things to do that. Shouldn't 
be too bad, but the current framework will probably not handle your situation.

I could be wrong, it's happened before. But this is how I understand it to 
work, looking at the source. I definitely should make this a note in the 
book, eh?
