Hi Guys, Just wanna double check if i am doing things right.

I am using struts 2 tiles to manage the view.
This code is actually working.

Just that am not really sure on what approach should be used or if i am doing things right. But according to some examples i read this is how they do it.

Just double checking before committing the project. Because if in long run maintainance will be a problem , i'll definitely be in trouble.

Thank You for your suggestions and comments in advance!

Here's my code:

My layout.jsp

My header.jsp

My login.jsp

heres my tiles.xml

Is there like an include element in tiles.xml that can lessen the codes?

because if it's a big project tiles.xml

will definitely bring lots of block of codes....

Thanks Again!

You could also consider using plain old JSP templating.

It seems fine; although you're probably creating invalid HTML by repeating the <html>, <head>, and <body> tags.
I agree. Here's the link:
