I have written an interceptor (the doc help me) that check if there is a
"dipendente" (employee) in the session.

public class AuthInterceptor  implements Interceptor {

public void destroy() {

public void init() {

public String intercept( ActionInvocation actionInvocation ) throws
Exception {
System.out.println("SONO NELL'INTERCETTORE");
 Map session = actionInvocation.getInvocationContext().getSession();
 Dipendente dipendente = (Dipendente) session.get( "dipendente" );
if (dipendente == null) {
    return Action.LOGIN;
else {
    Action action = ( Action ) actionInvocation.getAction();

    if (action instanceof DipendenteAware) {

    System.out.println("Logged in: interceptor");
    return actionInvocation.invoke();

ok, I know!
i want that,for example, there are the name and surname of who is logged.

My AuthInterceptor check if a "dipendente" is in the session and if true,
put (with setDipendente(dipendente)) the user in the action.
So in the action i have to override the setDipendente(Dipendente dipendente)
and implement getDipendente() for show in the view the dipendente name and

<div class="info">
<h3>your info</h3>
<p>Name: <s:property value="dipendente.nome" /><br />
surname: <s:property value="dipendente.cognome" /><br />
Username: <s:property value="dipendente.username" /><br />
<h6><a href="<s:url action='doLogout'/>">Logout</a></h6>

I want that this info will be show in every secure page (so after the

Now how can i do that? i think that isn't correct put in every action the
variable Dipendente dipendente, implements DipendenteAware, override
setDipendente and implement getDipendente!!! I repeat the same code in every

I think to write an action for example DipendenteInfo that have the variable
dipendente, with setter and getter, and after extend this class with other
class that needs to show the info.
But i am not sure...
