I briefly explain here my requirement
After sending the response from my application i need to insert the Total action execution time along with some request parameters in DB i do so because Sending the response and insertion in DB should be asynchronous.

1. With the below code i am able to get the action execution time and the parameters passed to it.
How to fetch value of a variable which i have assigned in my action class ??

2. Timer interceptor just logs the time taken by the action is it possible to assign the Timetaken value to a variable ??

Getting an arbitrary property from an arbitrary action isn't possible without reflection, as far as I know. You have to know what methods you can call on an action in order to do it without reflection.

If you're always getting the *same* property from actions then you can create an interface with a getter for that property and have your actions implement that interface. The interceptor would then cast the action to that interface and call interface methods.

I suppose you could create an interface that returns a map, and set named properties in that map from within the action, if you need it to be totally general-purpose, but that entails more busywork in the actions.

Using a reflection helper could probably reduce the clutter in the interceptor to a line or two, I guess.

(Not very organized, but those are my initial thoughts :)
I agree. Here's the link:
