Subject RE: struts-tags - long form problem
Date Sat, 06 Oct 2001 10:56:55 GMT
Thanks a lot for this valuable info. Actually I have a version retrieved in
last December and modified some tags and wrote some new tags to fit our
needs (I am only using taglibs from the struts framework).
But it looks like to solve this problem, I have to acquire the latest
version and redo my changes.

I have all the forms with a Custom Type (PageBean) which is wrapper around a
Collection and like this idea because I dont have to create a new javabean
for each view.

So the question is whether the included jsp files (fragments) will still
read properties from form's bean?

Actually, it is possible, and it is the only solution I am aware of. I
because I rely on this heavily to solve exactly the problem you are

Early versions of Struts stored form-related data in page scope, which
prevented the use of nesting in the way you describe. However, some time
ago - before the Struts 1.0 release - this was changed so that the
form-related data is stored in request scope.

This makes it possible to break up your pages like this:

  <html:form action="whatever">
    <jsp:include page="part1.jsp" flush="true"/>
    <jsp:include page="part2.jsp" flush="true"/>

Incidentally, questions on Struts-related tags are better asked on the
struts-user mailing list.
