Maintaining form data across pages...

I am trying to setup a series of jsp pages (requestForm, confrimation jsp).

I set the scope of my requestForm to "session" as to maintain the data across the various jsps, but I get it as if reset is called, after the confirmation page submits

What is the best way to maintain the request data across several jsp pages, speically I have lots of pages as step 1, step 2, step 3 before submiting the action, with different form beans.

Thanks, best regards

Its a part of the framework that whenever u fire a request the reset method will be executed and then remaining things.........the default implemenattion of reset deosnt have anything

so if u wnat to maintain ur formdata across many pages ........keep that formbean in session scope and dont override that reset method .ie dont provode any implementation.........

i hope this will solve ur problem

You can associate the same for bean to the different action classes or you can extend the form beans of the other action classes with the form bean which you need in the others and make the scope of this form bean as session
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
