Subject RE: Offtopic: Dynamic Menus and struts?

There was a discussion about this recently. Search the list archives for "Java array to JavaScript
array". You'll want to build your JavaScript array based on a (probably) session scoped Java
array. Your JavaScript function would then be responsible for building the menu items.
