Subject RE: Problems with iterate

You need to do two things.

First, you need to generate appropriate names for your input fields. If you
use the current Struts tags then all the occurances of your two fields in
the example below will generate names of "firstName" and "lastName". What
you want is to generate names in the format "contactDataVector[x].firstName"
and "contactDataVector[x].lastName", where x is the index number of the
field. Dave Hay has posted a set of modified Struts tags which generate
these names on Ted Husted's site:  - "Indexed

Secondly you need to provide the appropriate getters/setters in your bean
and ActionForm. Obviously in your bean you need setFirstName() and
setLastName() methods - additionally you need the following getter in your

  public ContactData getContactDataVector(int index) {

     return (ContactData)(contactDataVector.get(index));


Hope this helps.
