Subject RE: Action Under a Tile?
Date Fri, 18 Jul 2003 18:07:41 GMT
We have a tile definition that does something similar, it includes a JSP
with an import of another JSP on it
The JSP the tile points to has this code on it

<c:import url="/url"/>

Additionally the url is parameterized via tiles controller, so the actual
tag usage looks like this:

<c:import url="${view.form}"/>

Which includes the contents there.

Not sure if this will solve your problem.

Subject: Action Under a Tile?

I am intermediately experienced with Struts, but I hit a brick wall
today trying to solve the following problem:

I am about 90% finished with a web app for a client. In discussions
yesterday they decided to add an "at-a-glance" section to each page of
the web site. You can think of this as a news feed that will sit on the
left sidebar, it will have the same information on every page, but
generating the information will require some business logic, and thus an

I can easily add the layout for this into the tile that services the
pages on the site.... It will be a simple collection to iterate over, so
the JSP is simple as well.

The Complicated Part: adding a collection to the request scope for each
of my existing actions. There are 15 actions existing.

I dreamed that it would be possible to add a tiles definition that
included the result of an Action as opposed to a JSP (well, more
accurately, included a JSP after being sent through an action first).
Essentially, this means 2 actions are executed on each request.... the
request's action... and the action to populate the data sidebar.

I tried to do this, by using a tag like this:
<tiles:put name="at-a-glance" value="/common/"/>

I get the following error: Exception in /common/ Cannot
forward after response has been committed

I am intermediately experienced with servlets, and I know that servlet
includes are somewhat possible... but I'm obviously not experienced
enough to solve this problem. Thanks for your help!
