Here's an issue that I'm sure people have already asked on this board...

I am running STRUTS. In my JSP code, I launch a link to the SAME JSP as a popup. In other words, the same form bean is used in the spawned page. The problem is that after the spawned window is closed, the information in the PARENT form is LOST. Any suggestions???

The parent launches the popup directly from the JSP via JScript or HTML.

Check if this form is being stored in the session, according to the action tag's "scope" attribute.

Second, make sure the parent window's form is submitted, or else the data you see in its form is in the client-side, not in the server-side!

If you don't submit (or can't submit) the parent window's form, you'll have to fill the popup form with JavaScript.

Thanks for the reply. I'm sorry I have not gotten back to you quickly. Anyway, I am working on your suggestion. However, I am having trouble switching out the form bean with the original form bean saved in the session. Any suggestions?
