Subject Re: Pagination source code
Date Sun, 18 Dec 2005 15:41:35 GMT

I asked a similar question a few months back. It appears that pagination 
is considered business-logic by some and view by others.
Personally, I found that the following approach worked really well for 
me (it was a struts application):
- I considered pagination part of the business logic
- I created some java utility methods to calculate the different 
"ranges" for the pages, based on the number of items I have to manage 
(in particular, I can handle nicely the case where there are just a few 
items and I don't need pagination at all). Also, I could have easily 
made page size parametric too.
- I exported the range value as Context parameters
- in the JSP view I used JSTL variables to access the parameters and 
build navigation links between pages without any scriptlets

this was powerful, simple and flexible, but then again, that was just me.
