Subject RE: AjaxTag 1.3 support?
Date Sat, 02 Feb 2008 00:02:04 GMT
I was able to get the AjaxTags stuff working (with Tiles2 although I don't think that matters
at all).

As Dave said, your action should return null since you want the action to return XML in the
Instead, in addition to returning a null result, I simply wrote the xml to the response:
AjaxXmlBuilder xml = new AjaxXmlBuilder();

... build your xml response ...

response.setContentType("text/xml; charset=iso-8859-1");
response.setHeader("Cache-Control", "no-store, max-age=0, no-cache, must-revalidate");
response.addHeader("Cache-Control", "post-check=0, pre-check=0");
response.setHeader("Pragma", "no-cache");
PrintWriter pw = response.getWriter();
Hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply. I guess I should have said freemarker instead of
sitemesh...?  At any rate, when the docs don't match the release, it's a
bad thing.

I shouldn't need to do any of this should I? Can you point me at a
simple, minimalist example of the <s:autocompleter> tag?

If you're writing directly to the stream I doubt you'd even want to
anything other than a null from the action, no? What is the

SiteMesh? The Ajax implementation isn't tied to SiteMesh at all.

Dated? Much of the S2 Ajax documentation is for S2.1, which isn't even
released yet. If anything, it's pre-dated.
