Subject Re: get an array from cocoon request
Date Thu, 17 Mar 2005 08:37:20 GMT
Hi all,

This shouldn't be necessary. Input fields with same names are all submitted and should be
in the HTTP request as an array or something...

Looking around on the web, I found a construct in XSP that might lead you to what you need:

xsp-request:get-parameter-values(name). You'll have to dig into the code of the XSP generator
(?) to 
find out how it is actually done...
