Subject Turning OFF auto form population?
Date Wed, 19 May 2004 17:32:43 GMT
Hello all... Is it possible to turn OFF Struts auto-populating an ActionForm 
with the paramters from the client?

The reason I ask is that I'm converting a non-Struts app over, and in this 
app, because it was using a homegrown framework, we have value object 
classes which are basically exactly what ActionForms are, except that they 
are NOT auto-popualated.  The problem is that some of the getter and setter 
method names may not match the input parameters, and rather than trying to 
go through it all and change the names to match (which I can do as a later 
step), I'd like to turn off the auto-populate function if I can.

If I can't, I can just leave these classes as-is and just have them not 
extend ActionForm... since they are always manually dealt with, that's not a 
problem, but if I can make make them extend ActionForm and turn off the 
auto-populate, then I can just swing back around in a later iteration and 
make the changes I need to then.

Thanks all!
