Hi all,

Is there any struts2 tag that i can use inside a jsp,to change the property of an object in session?.

Here is my requirement.

I have an object A in session(attribute name "A") which has 2 properties say name and age.

class A{
String name;
int age;
}

I want to change A.name inside a jsp using struts2 tags.

What i want to know is,is there any tag which does the below inside a jsp(don't want to use any scriptlet),
((A)session.getAttribute("A")).setName("Santhosh");

rgds,
Santhosh.

Should have used <jsp:setProperty> instead.
<jsp:setProperty name="A" property="name" value="adaa"/>

To be honest I'm not sure why you'd want to--to me it seems like that kind of functionality belongs in an action.

Hi David,
Ya,it looks dirty ..
But the thing is,i had to toggle one property after the page is loaded.
