Subject RE: Representing Existing Objects In Forms
Date Mon, 01 Dec 2003 01:20:27 GMT
David, 

Thanks for your assistance.

I suppose im wondering if there is a way to set the values of my ActionForm implementation
variables(CustomerForm in my case) before the form is displayed, thus automatically populating
the form when it is displayed. 

I am able to set the values of my form bean (CustomerForm) in its constructor. But to do what
i want, i need to have access to the request object in order to get a cookie value.

Perhaps I should just use your first suggestiong in order to achieve this.

Toby,

You could:

a) Have a Password field in your ActionForm.  Then, you could lookup the
password, copy it into the ActionForm, and have the ActionForm display it in
your JSP when you show a <html:text property="password"/> field.

b) Save the password in a bean and print it out with a <bean:write ... />
statement so it is only viewable (read-only)

c) use an <html:text name="someRequestOrSessionBean" property="password" />
so you could save your own bean into the request or session scope then
display it as a text box.  If you want it to be submitted to a form, you
probably want to make sure that whatever action it submits to has a field
with the same "property" name (in this case "password").

I think there are other methods but these are the ones I know and use.
Probably because the Struts examples showed me how (hint, hint!). :)

Regards,
David

David,

Perhaps I dont understand the full capabilities of ActionForms.

I am fine with creating a new customer from the contents of a form. But
after this is done (and, for eg, the user has used parts of the site) and
they decide to change their email address, how can i display (in the form)
the password they entered when they registered in order to let them modify
it?

thanks,

toby.

Toby,

Where is your trouble?  Do you not understand ActionForms?  Are you worried
about how to transfer the data submitted and auto-populated into the
ActionForm into your business logic?  Or is something else confusing you?

Regards,
David

hello all,

I am wanting to represent an existing object using a form and was wondering
how to do this.

My situation is displaying a customer's details in a form for the purpose of
allowing them to update them.

I cant think how I can populate the form tho.

Im new to struts and this list so i apolagise if this has already been
answered.

Thanks,

toby

Rajat,

I haven't had any problems with DBCP.  It's just that a different pool came
with Hibernate that I used in production by default.  I'm using DBCP in
testing but I always close my development computer (my desktop) down at
night so I have no comments on how DBCP works in reality.  I'm sure it's
fine in production.

Regards,
David
