Adding grids in MapBacked form

I am using map-backed form in Struts.
I am trying to achieve the following:
1. Create a form where user can add one or more editable grids, the columns of the grid are user-defined.
2. Provide 'Add' button to insert new row to the grid.
3. Each cell inserted in a row is text field.
4. user saves the data entered in the text field.
5. User restores the saved values and will see the results as a table.

I have done Steps 1 to 3 using simple javascript. However, i am unable to come up with an approach to save the grid and restore the table.

Can anyone provide pointers on how can I save the Grid object? Shall I append the values entered in text field as one string so that one row represents one string with some delimiting characters in between?

Please help

Pardon for my little knowledge , but can you explain me what is map-backed form ? Is it a bean which contains single property which is of type map ?

Or this links may fulfill your requirement !
