I have created a log-in Interceptor which checks for a request parameter. If this parameter exists, I then add 2 request parameters and forward to a jsp. The 2 request parameters I add are the same names as 2 input elements on the form of the jsp.
My struts.xml contains the following snippet:
My Login Interceptor contains the following snippet:
A snippet from my corresponding jsp containing the input elements:
For some reason the request parameters set in my interceptor are not resulting in the form elements being populated with the appropriate values.
I would appreciate advice as to what I need to do to ensure these request values are set into the jsp.
I'm not sure what your use-case is, but I'm suspicious that this is the right way to do it.
Interceptors are designed for cross-cutting concerns; I'm not convinced this is one (particularly since the interceptor will fire if someone decides to put that param in the URL--but perhaps that's what you want).
