Hi,

I was wondering if someone could help me with a problem I'm having. Part of my web application requires that I allow the user to choose the columns he wishes to perform an SQL query on.

Because I can't use <bean:write property=".../> tags (what columns the application shows in the table will change according to the query performed), I chose to create an ArrayList of ArrayLists of Strings where each string should represent one element of one row.

I declare my ArrayList of ArrayList of Strings as follows:


Inside of a while loop in the same class, I create new employee records:


The employeeList is then returned:


In my action class, I declare an ArrayList:


And I call on the method above to fill it with the appropriate data:


And set it to the session:


On my results page:
>

which returns a org.apache.JasperException:


If I iterate through the index, numerical values (0,1,2,3...18) will show with the correct number of records (19). If I bean:write the employee itself, it will show as [element1,element2...].

I'd really appreciate any help I can get!

Thanks in advance,
Alex

hmmm...nothing jumps out at me. I have not used generics much and never with nested collections. It seems like it should work fine. Is this valid code or just a post error?
ArrayList<String> employee = new ArrayList<Employee>();

About all I can say it to make sure you have taglib directive for logic. I am not sure how many hours I have wasted tracking down issues that turned out to be this simple mistake.
