Hi Everyone,
Upon entering a page, I set a columns Object into a Struts Form (corresponding to the page). I could have also put it in the request.
I want to access the columns object throught Javascript.

Is it possible?

Thanks in advance,

No, Java objects exist on the server, Javascript on the client.

This article might be helpful.

The best you can do is to use the server-side templating JSP to construct Javascript objects that contain the data you need, or to communicate back to the server via Ajax.
