For example - if I wanted to be able to show the list of currently logged on users on every page, I would like to be able to do this in a re-usable way.
However, if I were to put the list of currently logged on users into a jsp separate from the current list.jsp, I couldn't then simply use <c:import> to display that list on other pages as the variables would not have been initialised in the property bag.
I would like to be able to do this without having to amend all of the actions that create the other pages to set this data up etc.
Is there any way to achieve this or does anyone have any thoughts about how it could be done?
The only thing I can think of so far is to make the 'view' just generate XML and then have a jsp that contains the necessary AJAX code to load the view and render it... [originally posted on jforum.net by StuBramley]
