Subject RE: Problem with ParameterSelector
Date Wed, 10 Apr 2002 09:29:52 GMT
Hi,

I'm not sure if I understand you correctly..but let's give it a try.

If you use something like this:
>   	<map:act type="XYTestAction" action="rlist">
>   	  <map:parameter name="method" value="rlist_method"/>
>     </map:act>

then you define a parameter for the action itself, this
means the act() method of the action gets this parameter.
This parameter is not available to any other component.

An action can return a Map (key-value-pairs) and this
information can be retrieved by all components nested 
inside the "map:act" tag, so

>     <map:act set="XY">
>       <map:select type="parameter">
>         <map:parameter name="parameter-selector-test" value="{method}"/>

would work, if some of your actions returned a map containing
a key "method" with the appropriate value.

Please note that it is "{method}" and not "{$method}", the Javadoc 
is unfortunately wrong.
