Subject Re: session based pojo as form variables

928572663 I can not disagree more with you.

First we can not have the whole picture of your problem because only
you are in front of your screen and your system, so we just make an
educated guessing, so the more information you supply, the better. You
didn't supply your struts.xml file for example.

Because I'm guessing, I could conjecture that the page is not showing
your default data because you are calling the jsp page directly, not
through the action, but I can't tell. Believe me that I'm using S2
from two years now and *it works*, but I never seen an input text
named "#session.whatever" in a page, not even in the example apps.

I can guess too from how you implemented the SessionAware interface,
that you didn't read the docs, nor tacked a look at the example apps
source code (there are actions there that are SessionAware and you can
copy and paste). Reading the docs, example apps, previous mailing list
posts, debugging or web searching the problem can't turn the situation

If you are receiving lots of NPEs means to me that you are doing
something wrong. When that's the case, please provide the stack trace.

but a little clunky to configure IMO), a manual session object retrieval in a couple ways,
direct mapping to the session map (what you're sort-of doing), a custom interceptor that injects
the session bean into the action, etc.
