Subject RE: REPOST: How to specify input to validating multi-page wizard?
Date Wed, 05 Mar 2003 20:34:37 GMT
I assume you are managing the wizard using your own action and mappings?
If so, I did a similar design for my product. Essentially, I had to
create a mapping for each step so that the input could be specified
properly. Then, each JSP posted to the proper step mapping. For example,
I had /wizard1, /wizard2, and /wizard3.. On the 2nd wizard page, I had
it post to /wizard2, whose mapping had an input="/my/wizard2.jsp" to
ensure it goes to the second step.. IN the validation framework, you can
specify the page number using a hidden field on each JSP, like hidden
name="page" value="2", and specify the same page number as an attribute
in the validation.xml file for your bean. 

HTH,
James
