Subject generating dynamic forms from XML at run-time (not initialisation time)
Date Thu, 15 Aug 2002 15:07:45 GMT

I'm having difficulty working out how to do the
following using struts:

3 separate pages:

1. question.jsp... asks how many text boxes on the  
next page and what the form name of each text box
should be

2. dynamicForm.jsp... displays a form with the number
of text boxes specified in question.jsp - each named

3. results.jsp... concatenates all the text box
entries into a single string and displays it as simple

Is that possible? I can't find a way to do it (without
some heavy rewriting). I've seen examples using
indexed properties but I'd like to emulate the way
DynaActionForms does it from the struts-config.xml.
The problem is that the FormBeanConfigs are frozen
(with freeze()) at init stage of the ActionServlet.

I want to generate a particular form at run-time from
an xml file (similar to the form-beans section of
struts-config.xml 1.1b2) which is also generated at
run time.

I'd like to load the XML file inside an Action, edit
the FormBeanConfig for the correct mapping ActionForm
instance and forward to the dynamic form displaying
page with an appropriate bean.

Can anybody tell me if this is possible (and how) with
