You cannot link it to either since it is a mixture of View and 
Controller which is counter the suggested methodology of struts.
It should be refactored.  If you want to create a different app (swing 
based, or even create a soap service) it
would give no help to the app if it receives the results in HTML. They 
just need a collection.

On the other hand rendering a HTML table from a Collection is just a 
matter of a logic:iterate tag
and a few bean:write tags.
