I have an html form and need to map it to a form object to be sent to action. The html form is like:
There are multiple rows.
Each row has a checkbox in the first column.
Second column has a name
Third column has a list of checkboxes
It is like a normal form that lists a series of records and certain operations can be performed upon multiple records, depending upon which rows have been checked.
A unique ID is associated to each row.
Here is what I've thought:
The value of checkbox in first column can be the ID and this can be mapped to an array in the form bean.
The checkboxes in column 3 can have same name, say chkAttr for all rows, and value as "ID_1", "ID_2" etc.
This can be mapped to a String  chkAttr in form bean.
In this way I'll have to write a logic to get the values pertaining to a particular ID from chkAttr.
This is one approach. Is there a better way?
PS: I don't know Struts, just saw the application flow and applying logic.

Does anyone have any comments on this?
I would like to know how forms of this type are mapped in struts. I know how to do it best in plain JSPs.
