I know its not the best case scenario.  If i can do this then I will not
have to change major piece of the code.
I'll try to explain the scenario: basically one jsp page is used to show
results. this jsp page has pagination so each time 50 results are shown. But
the page has a printer friendly version.  when printer friendly link is
clicked this same jsp page is loaded again but this time around we want to
print everything not just 50 records. so in my action class there is a
method which returns sublist. but in this case i want it to return the whole

So in the jsp i know when printerfriendly is taking place because it is
being passed a parameter called ?print=true

so i thought that in jsp i could check if print=true then set action class
Printer method to true. ....kind of confusing i bet it sounds..
