Subject Re: Nested iterator struts 2.1.6 -- automatically rebuild the collection
Date Mon, 02 Mar 2009 01:13:51 GMT

Hi Phan,
??? I wrestled with this problem until I was out of my depth.?

I tried it with an ArrayList<ArrayList<Double>> initialized as 

[[1.0, 2.0, 3.0], [7.0, 8.0, 9.0]]
and on resubmission the data keeps getting flattened to 

[[[1.0]], [[2.0]], [[3.0]], [[7.0]], [[8.0]], [[9.0]]]

:(

Here is what I have dug up so far and hopefully someone who knows the code better might take
it further: 

The ArrayList is represented in the action by an instance of com.opensymphony.xwork2.util.XWorkList?
(a subclass of ArrayList). 
It overrides the ArrayList?addAll(Collection c) method as listed below. It??loops through
the collection and delegates to the add(Object element). The element (which in our case is
the inner ArrayList) is passed by add(Object element)?to the convert method which *does not
check if it is a collection and loop*. I think that is the crux of the problem.



?@Override
??? public boolean addAll(Collection c) {
??????? if (c == null) {
??????????? throw new NullPointerException("Collection to add is null");
??????? }

??????? for (Object aC : c) {
??????????? add(aC);
??????? }

??????? return true;
??? }



? @Override
??? public boolean add(Object element) {
??????? element = convert(element);

??????? return super.add(element);
??? }



private Object convert(Object element) {
??????? if ((element != null) && !clazz.isAssignableFrom(element.getClass())) {
??????????? // convert to correct type
??????????? if (LOG.isDebugEnabled()) {
??????????????? LOG.debug("Converting from " + element.getClass().getName() + " to " + clazz.getName());
??????????? }

??????????? Map<String, Object> context = ActionContext.getContext().getContextMap();
??????????? element = conv.convertValue(context, null, null, null, element, clazz);? //My
comment -- conv is a reference to an instance of XWorkConverter
??????? }

??????? return element;
??? }


Sorry I could not solve the problem satisfactorily
Chris

Yeah, I think my OGNL expression usage is not correct but I tried
several combination, none of them work.  

If I declare my variable as:
ArrayList<ArrayList<User>> userList = new ArrayList<ArrayList<User>>();
//getter and settter

I tried this on JSP and it didn't work.
<s:iterator value="userList" id="userList" status="outerStatus">
    <s:iterator value="#userList" status="innerStatus">
        <s:textfield
name="userList[%{outerStatus.index}].[%{innerStatus.index}].name"/>
        <s:textfield
name="userList[%{outerStatus.index}].[%{innerStatus.index}].email"/>
        <s:textfield
name="userList[%{outerStatus.index}].[%{innerStatus.index}].address"/>
    </s:iterator>
</s:iterator>

What do you have inside the iterator tag?? Hard to diagnose without
knowing what you have. Some possible causes:
A a possible OGNL expression error inside your iterator tag. 
If the Sample objects are not built-in java objects (String, Date..) you
might be having type conversion problems? 
Are you sending the information back to the same action or is there a
possible mix-up in the attributes of your tags

Hi,

Using <s:iterator ..> tag, how do you instruct struts to rebuild the
collection automatically?

I have a List of List of Sample objects
I use <s:iterator > tag to loop through and display data for user to
make changes
The displaying part is OK; however, when the form is submitted, the List
of List of Sample objects is not populated.

In Struts 1.x, the tag <logic:iterator > was used and if we add
indexed=true for each element inside the <
logic:iterator > tag, Struts
automatically rebuild the collection.  Is there a way that it can
accomplish with <s:iterator>?

Thank you.
