Subject RE: Dynamic ActionMapping params
Date Wed, 23 Jul 2003 19:25:19 GMT
The way I've solved this is to:

- get the configured ActionForward from mapping.findFoward("BLA")
- build a new path string using the path from the configured ActionForward and the dynamic
- create a new instance of ActionForward
- populate it with the new path and the other properties from the configured ActionForward
- return this new ActionForward

May not be elegant, but it works for me.

Subject: Dynamic ActionMapping params

I have created several sites that use the "mapping.findForward("BLA") method to forward (or
redirect) to a relative URL.  This has always been statically specified in my struts-config.xml
like this:

<forward name="success" path="/main_layout.jsp" redirect="true"/>

then in code I do:

mapping.findForward("BLA");   //(simple stuff)

Now I have a need to forward to a URL that will have dynamic parameters like this:


Not sure how to pull this off.  Obviously I can't use a statically defined forward definition.
 I guess I could put the params in the request, which works fine if I forward, but what if
I redirect.  I would have to put them in the session.  Not clean coding in my opinion.  I
would rather specify as querystring params.

Anyone done this?

I am using Struts v1.02
