Subject Re: Forwarding to a Java Application
Date Wed, 30 Dec 2009 06:39:12 GMT

The <Object> tag previously referred to is where you can launch  a java app from 
a jsp (or even an ordinary html page). Check out Java Web Start.
Your java app can be an ordinary swing app and the server sends
a .jnlp file with instructions to the browser to download the necessary classes.
Your client needs to either have a full JDK installed (not just a JRE) or have
Java Web Start installed.

i Wes:
Thanks for your answer.
I am a little bit confused now.
What I am trying to do is uncommon?????
The fact that I want to launch a Java class(Nor a Servlet) from a Java Server 
age is something odd???
Or is it against the rules of Struts????
The question is now ===>  How would you do something like that????
Thanks again.

 I don't think an upgrade is necessary. I think you just need to
 understand a little better how things work in a JSP/Servlet
 environment... The page that launches the MainMenu application is
 bound to have either an <applet... or <object... tag. It has been a
 while for me, I can't remember which. But, if there is information
 that needs passed to the MainMenu, then you need to make that
 information into params. Then, when the page that launches the
 MainMenu is rendered, pass the information to the MainMenu by
 rendering the appropriate <param... tags.
