This week's giveaway is in the Java/Jakarta EE forum. We're giving away four copies of Java EE 8 High Performance and have Romain Manni-Bucau on-line! See You also probably do not need them if you do not need to prepopulate forms, a functionality often required when backwards navigation is a must.
Why not just put this logic into the reset method of the ActionForm?
Because I don't have ActionForm classes, just DynaActionForms defined in the struts-config.xml file. So Only for prepopulation of forms. What about to load rows of data into a Table. Unless the Value Object is loaded into the Session Scope. correct? Mark
Yes, a SetupAction would also be useful to make data available to your forms. Grabbing VOs would be an example. Stick them in session until you can clear them out. Also you can have PersistAction(s) as well that send groups of VOs back to the backend. Managing Setup and Persist Actions properly can keep those darn Value Objects from clogging up valuable memory.
