Subject RE: Initialization in a dispatchAction class
Date Mon, 29 Jul 2002 16:13:57 GMT

I forwarded that solution in another e-mail (so the next poor sap that 
wants to do it can find it in the archives). 

Thanks for the verification I am not a crackpot...  Well, a bad one

That was my thought, but, not knowing what you'd tried, I didn't want to 

suggest it :-)

I haven't fooled around with extending the dispatch actions - but I 
don't see why this would be a problem.  Just extend it, do what you need 

to, and then call the super.execute(...).  I think that's where you'll 
get the most mileage ;-) wrote:
