I have a requirement of a table on a screen with the option of sorting on all columns. I was thinking that display tag will be a nice solution. But sorting is not working as the sorting link points to the JSP and my JSP is under WEB-INF and additionally in Struts we should always go through 'actions'.
I have the following in my JSP: <display:column property="loanNumber" title="Loan #" sortable="true"/>
I haven't really used the display tag library, so I couldn't help you much with information on what it does or doesn't do. If it needs to redisplay the page in the manner you've described, though, it doesn't look like it's going to work in your situation.
