Subject RE: Strut2: How to determine if a request is a form submission?

Thanks Dave. I just implemented my own interceptor for this purpose. I
just thought for such a common use case (handling simple form
submission), the framework may already have built-in support for it. I
know Spring's SimpleFormController provides such work flow support.

When I did this I wrote an interceptor that did various things based on
the
request type; it was a bit more involved but underneath it all that was
just
checking for GET v. POST. You could use the same idea to set a flag or
whatever (or take it further and call action methods, modify what method
gets
executed, etc.)
