i'm assuming that i put the results (generated by the action class ) into an
array or some such.. and then put that into the session/request?

Yep, thats the way its generally done, then you can use struts tags (or jstl
tags etc...) to access this stuff in the session or request attributes,
iterate over it, display it as needed...
If the results are complex, you might wish to define beans with getters and
setters for stuff, to make it easier to access from the tags, but if its
just a bunch of Strings or suchlike, a Collection object of some form should
be good enough.

So your searchpage.jsp submits to your searchaction which does its thing,
creates some beans or collections with the results and forwards to your
resultpage.jsp (by looking up the appropriate actionforward from the mapping
and returning it)

Subject: search result design mentalist moment..


ok.. i think i may have lost my mind..

i thought i had this whole struts thing pretty much... until

I have a page that lets the user submit search criteria to retrive some data
back..
i have an form and action for this page..

i have a page that displays the data..

now as i understand it the search Formbean only contains thr search
criteria..
so where do i store the search results and how does the next page get access
to it..

i'm assuming that i put the results (generated by the action class ) into an
array or some such.. and then put that into the session/request?

i've said it before.. i'm new to this whole jsp thing...

James
