Subject Re: ImageButtonBean & LookupDispatchAction
Date Thu, 30 Sep 2004 12:37:58 GMT
Note, Ben, that in LookupDispatchAction we do the following:

Used the mapping attirbute parameter "method" to find "Delete It" in the 
request object name/value parameter pair "method='Delete It'".  Created 
a reverse map of all the keys in the application resource property file 
for the users locale which allowed us to get "button.delete" from the 
key "Delete It".  We are not yet done.  We then use the value 
"button.delete" as the key in a map we have coded into our 
LookupDispatchAction subclass to get the value "delete".  If this seems 
like a good idea to you, then we think differently.  All l have to say 
about this is "WHEW!".  LOL

The ImageButtonBean is as convoluted and requires that we create a 
slough of classes and objects.  This is, I would suggesrt, something we 
might not want to recommend to coders.
