Subject Re: Init of forms
Date Tue, 26 Sep 2006 21:07:18 GMT

Hi Ilja,
i'm using DAO patterns but the question was: how can i init a form inside an
action. I Didn't
find any method to do this and also no example. All struts samples are with
forms to create
new objects and not to edit existing objects.
regards, Andy
