Subject Re: [S2.2.1] Struts Type Converter for \"sub-model\" objects not working?
Date Thu, 20 Jan 2011 03:52:23 GMT
The only way for me to solve it was to add a separate variable in my
Action (e.g. "tempSubModel") that was of the same Type as the submodel
class.  Then in the receiving action, I just set the submodel variable
equal to tempSubModel.  (I'm sure that is clear as mud, but that's the
best way for me to describe it.)  I think it appropriate to open back
to the Struts mailing list...

Does anyone know why subclasses are not run through the type
conversion process in Struts?  IMHO, I think that this functionality
should be available  Here's an example [Action]
file that you would think would work just fine.

	# Converts bigD in the ParentClass
	# Converts bigD in the ChildClass (THIS DOES NOT WORK!)

To better explain, I have attached a simple Struts 2/Maven app that
demonstrates the issue...
