hi guys
i am trying to move from struts mvc to spring mvc. i was reading that you cant use a command object with MultiactionController. is that true.
i have a pretty basic use case of displaying user list, createing new user, editring user etc...
in struts we use RequestDispacthAction where we can target which method to call for each use case with actionForm mapped to your bean.
The same applies with MultiactionController in spring, but how to bind a command object.
Or i have to use SimpleFormController for form submissiion
any links or suggestions
please let me know

Just declare a parameter, Spring will bind a request to a command object automatically.
Read Javadoc for more details.

Thanks kengKaj
I understand that if i am using a simple form controllerr then i can decalre a command object and cast it onSubmit() method.
But for multiaction controller i cant seem i cant set the command Name and commandClass value in spring file
hereis my controller and i am using method name resolver and its working fine to call a specific method in my controller class. i wanted to also add a command object to it but doesn't seem to work.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
