tables, bean representing values over time, how to?

Hi guys,

I am looking for some pattern in struts (taglib,..) for generation of beans that represent values changing over time.

Let's say you have bean



Then I have list of SomeBean objects, where each instance represent one year

Every example I have seen generate table in this format

year | value
2001 | 3242
2002 | 4564
2003 | 5656

etc.


f.ex. this one from http://struts.improve-technologies.com/intro/index.html


But I'd like to present this in this way

year | 2001 | 2002 | 2003
value| 3242 | 4564 | 5656


that is bean properties as rows not columns,

In this use case we know that we'll have list f.ex. 10 years, but we have many value properties in bean.

Do you have any tips how to achieve it in nice and elegant way?(by nice and elegant I mean layout:collection example)

regards,

milan

I've forgotten, it can be struts 1 or struts 2, it doesn't matter right now
