Struts 2 and auto population of HTML tables

Hi,

I am working away on a site using struts 2 and tiles 2. This is all new to me but I am making steady progress. Struts 2 and tiles 2 are great to work with.

Now I am wondering does anyone know of a tutorial that shows how to populate a table dynamically and sort dynamically using struts 2, JSON, Dojo.
I know nothing about JSON or DOJO so I need a tutorial/WAR with every import and show you every jar you need.

Im pretty certain I can just have a table in a JSP like so


and have dojo, json populate the table through annotating a java class. I know very little about annotations aswell.
This is why I need a tutorial/War with all the bells and whistles.

This is the best I could find but cant get it working

Thanks

//
// Bugs/Comments: han@velocityhsi.com
//
// Change History:
//
// 11-26-01:
// o Made a few more settings configurable (i.e. data delimiter etc).
// o Added a check for the browser type/version (>= IE 5.0 allowed).
// 11-27-01:
// o Used document.getElementById method to retrieve object
// o Now supports both IE 5.0 or greater and Netscape 6.0 or greater
// 11-28-01:
// o Fixed the status display for Netscape.
// o Fixed the cursor shape for Netscape. Used pointer instead of hand.
// 11-29-01:
// o Fixed a cursor bug for IE 5.5
// 12-03-01:
// o Uses delete/insert cell when doing the sort.
// o Uses delete/insert cell for the title.
// 12-04-01:
// o Created redrawTitle function to tidy things up a bit.
// 12-09-01:
// o Used the innerMost cell's nodeValue to display title name.
// 12-10-01:
// o Now preserves the align property of the title cell.
// o Allows to have multiple child nodes inside the title cell.
// o Simulates <TH> by centeing and bold-facing title cell contents.
// 01-21-02: (Thanks to Ric Shumack ...)
// o Added one more condition for table init call (table.tainted == false)
// o Used the preferred method for checking the browser version
// 03-01-02: (Recommendation from Dan ...)
// o Default sorting will be applied to all tables upon loading
// 03-12-02:
// o Changed parseInt to parseFloat in compare function
// 03-13-02:
// o Ignores THEAD, TFOOT in the data row list
// 03-18-02:
// o Compare as numbers only if both inputs are number
// 03-19-02:
// o Now compares IETF recognized date string inputs
// 03-29-02: (Recommendation from Ashley ...)
// o New global settings for up/down images and title font face
// 03-31-02:
// o Retains various cell properties
// o align, vAlign, bgColor, noWrap, width, height
// o borderColor, borderColorLight, borderColorDark
// o Bug fix in isDate method.
// 04-04-02: (Thanks to Steen ...)
// o Can have separate table for titles
// 04-06-02: (Thanks to Steen ...)
// o CSS properties are preserved
// o Bug fix (  removed)
// o Title cell events applied to cells
// 04-08-02:
// o Used eval to simplify the code
// 04-24-02:
// o Removes HTML tags when comparing cell content
// 05-07-02:
// o Handles Euro date format
// 05-15-02:
// o Fixed up/down replacement reg exp
// 06-13-02:
// o Title column hints (via TITLE) added
// 07-12-02:
// o Changed up/down char to up/down arrows
// o Up/down arrows get displayed if doSortUponLoad is set
// 07-15-02:
// o Added a new feature to allow skipping columns when sorting
// o This requires 2nd parameter to specify which columns to skip
// 07/19-02:
// o Title cells can be highlighted (bgcolor chaged) onMouseOver ...
// 09-04-02:
// o Bug fix in cell highlighting functionality
// 09-06-02:
// o Mouse pointer becomes hourglass while sorting
// 09-21-02:
// o Sorting is mistakenly done twice if doSortUponLoad is set
// o Mouse pointer to hourglass while sorting ... (bug fixes)
// o Use "" as default in cursor settings
// o DOES NOT WORK WITH NETSCAPE ... TO BE FIXED SOON !!!
// 09-22-02:
// o Made it work with Netscape
// 09-23-02:
// o Fixed error if doSortUponLoad is NOT set
// o Sort direction alternates even between tables

//*****************************************************************************
// sortTable.js
//
// This script contains useful functions that can be used to convert ordinary
// tables into sortable tables by modifying the HTML sources.
//
// Here is how one can do that. The following assumptions are required
// for the tables to be sorted.
//
// 1. All the record columns must be the same lengh. Otherwise (i.e. the ones
// that contain colspan) the rows will be ignored.
//
// 2. Row spans can not happen in the record rows though column spans
// can be one of the record rows.
//
// 3. Row-spanned single column will be considered as title.
//
// To enable the sorting, simply include this javascript source file and
// add an onLoad event to the <body> like below:
//
// <body onLoad='initTable("table1");initTable("table2");' ...>
//
// Note that all the tables that need to be sorted MUST contain ID tag.
// So, if they do not exist, you must create one for each table that
// needs to be sorted. Also, the table names/ids MUST BE UNIQUE.
