Subject RE: Design Question - same action, many jsps/views
Date Mon, 28 Jul 2003 09:36:43 GMT

one way to solve it is not to duplicate code in different Action classes,
but have many ActionMapping entries in your struts-config.xml file.

This way you keep the navigational part of your application away from Action
classes, but still avoid code duplication in Actions.

Subject: Design Question - same action, many jsps/views

Hi all,
I've come across a situation which I'm not sure how to handle with
I have an action which, depending on from which page it's called, 
should forward to different jsps pages.
Currently, for each resultant jsp, I create a new action with the exact
logic code inside which forwards to the right jsp.
I'm just not sure if this is the right way to do it, because it's
replication of code.
An alternative might be to switch on the input path of the request and
forward to 
The right jsp, but I'm not sure if this is right either. This has to
have come up 
before, so I'm looking for a best practice solution.
What do you guys reckon?
