Subject [jira] Commented: (STR-2956) Strongly typed forms in Action dispatching
Date Thu, 05 Oct 2006 04:09:15 GMT

Paul Benedict commented on STR-2956:

Good points in paragraph one. I don't know if anyone has ever done strongly typed forms in
an action method. I never have seen it discussed. It's possible. This is definitely not a
solution for DynaBeans.

I agree the complexity would be raised. The reason I find the complexity appealing is because
I use non-Dyna forms 99% of the time. The casting could be one line I can remove in about
30 places :-) I got my idea off of Spring because Spring can auto-dect types, and I find that
kind of stuff appealing. I personally rather work with strict typing than casting from generics.

> Actions always cast a form into the intended subclass. It would be nice to allow the
the dispatch classes to match up against the strongly typed methods. Example:
> private ActionForward doMyAction(ActionMapping mapping, MyForm form, HttpServletRequest
request, HttpServletResponse response);
