Subject Saving form data
Date Tue, 18 Feb 2003 06:18:16 GMT
Is there any piece of functionality in Struts that I can take advantage 
of in order to save and restore form data entered by the user as the 
page is reloaded.  For example I am displaying an html table that shows 
a paged view of the data.  The user can click on page 1,2,3, etc. 
 Clicking on these links reloads the SAME page, but with the next subset 
of data in the html table.  The problem I am running into is that the 
page in question also has a form area where the user is supposed to fill 
in information and submit it.  When the user clicks on the links to page 
through the table, the data they entered in the form fields is lost.

In the past, I have made round trips to the server and submitted the 
form data, storing it in session to later be retrieved.  I want a better 
approach now though.  I was considering passing the form data in a 
querystring but am afraid I will hit its size limit.  Any ideas as to 
how this can best be accomplished?
