Subject RE: Populate Form from DAO
Date Fri, 01 Feb 2008 12:40:53 GMT
Did you try :

MyObject theObject;
(geter and setter on theObject)

execute () {

    theObject = myDAO.getRecord(id);

And in the JSP : <s:property value="theObject.member1"/>

Objet : Populate Form from DAO

Struts 2 allows us to automatically populate our forms if we name our fields correctly, which
is wonderful.

My actions usually go something like this

execute () {

    MyObject o = myDAO.getRecord(id);

   member1 = o.getMember1();
   member2 = o.getMember2();


MyObject is a JO for hold a row in the database.  I like the fact that I can name my form
field 'member1' and it the interceptor will set and get from my Action.  I dont like having
to set up each member variable in the action with the members my class.  Is it possible to
somehow have Struts automatically populate an Java Object rather then the Action?  I thought
I remember reading about this before but I'm not sure.  It's not a big deal, and I know I
can use OGNL to access the value, but I wanted the convience of mapping a fieldName to my
custom object.  Is this possible?

Thank you,
