Subject Re: Execute and wait interceptor and calling an action more than once
Date Mon, 21 Jul 2008 18:27:05 GMT
I don't think that it can be done with an ajax approach. With ajax or not,
concurrent requests for the same action name returns first action's result.

I tried this simple scenario with an action which outputs its query
parameter. I also added a thread.sleep in execute method to gain extra time
to call the same action more than once.

When i triggered the same action with different parameters in 2 separate
browsers, first one redirected to the wait page as expected. At that point i
triggered the second copy. When they both returned  from wait page, both
output were first action's parameter.

I think ajax/div approach would show the same behaviour with the above.

However, the wildcard action mapping seems to separate the wait and returns.
when i mapped the action name like myaction* and called myaction1 and
myaction2 at the same time like before, they seem to return with their
respective results. i guess, this can also be used to separate the key.

Thanks for responses.
