Subject Re: Accessing Struts Datasource from another action servlet
Date Mon, 02 Feb 2004 09:46:06 GMT
have you not seen the threads regarding the struts datasource?

the party line seems to frown upon it as it encourages breaking with 
MVC, unless you pass the connection up to the model tier.

that said, in your shoes I'd configure a datasource in the second 
webapp (albeit with the same config values) rather than trying to pass 
from one to the other.

I'd also suggest that storing datasources in the session isn't ideal 
but thats just my opinion.

Cheers Mark
