Hi there,
I am currently using struts and am using action chaining, however i realize that when a request comes in with parameters , the corrresponding action class gets activated and then it forwards to another action class , then that action class forwards to a jsp page, now the thing is when it reaches the jsp page, the request parameters mysteriously goes missing, i got a null, but i am able to retrieve those parameters in the first action class. am i missing something here? or is this an inherent problem in struts? is so, how do i work around it? putting the request parameters as attributes seem like an ugly workaround, can someone enlighten me? Thanks!!


Best Regards

Hi Steward,

How are you "forwarding" the request? In the action class are you forwarding to the next action by using actionMapping.findForward(...) in the execute() method of the Action class you are forwarding from.

Thanks,
John

In action ,
class you can keep your request parameter with request/session/application like this:

request.setAttribute("some parameter", request.getParameter("some parameter"));

or

request.getSession().setAttribute("some parameter", request.getParameter("some parameter"));


And in jsp page

you can get data in request/session like this :

request.getAttribute("some parameter");

or

session.getAttribute("some parameter");
