Subject Struts Design Issue - Search Functionality - Best Practices
Date Fri, 26 Sep 2003 07:19:21 GMT

Design Requirement - Show a list of Search records. The screen will have
buttons for Previous/Next Month. On clicking these records would be shown.

Issues - 

a) How to store data and best practices to be followed in Struts. Return
back a Collection of Form Beans and iterate over these. However certain
other fields are required to be stored also which are not displayable. i.e.
Current Date which is a hidden parameter. Any comments ?

b) Use a single Form Bean which has variables like String[] to store the
array of Displayable Fields. However, this seems to be a less than perfect
solution. Any comments ???

c) Use Generic Search - Search on different modules, with different fields ?
Any Brilliant Guru contributions for this one..Sure need some wizard out

Pls. advise on the best approach for the Search functionality. We need to
design an application which has Search on each and every page.

Thanks for your time ,
