This week's book giveaway is in the General Computing forum. We're giving away four copies of Arduino in Action and have Martin Evans, Joshua Noble, and Jordan Hochenbaum on-line! See this thread for details.
I all I need to log all post parameter inside a db table. I create for this a Filter Servlet with jsp mapping. The problem is that this servlet is called after the Action class tha handle the post action.
Inside Filter Servlet, when I use the code Enumeration enumPostData = httpRequest.getParameterNames(); .. Enumeration is empty, because Action class forward the request using the parameter "redirect=true".
This is part of struts-config: <action name="autocarro000" type="it.genialloyd.autocarro.ProcessaAutocarro000" validate="false" input="/autocarro/autocarro000.jsp" scope="session" path="/processaAutocarro000"> <forward name="autocarro040" path="/do/preparaAutocarro040" redirect="true" />
Instead of making the filter intercept the request before it goes to a jsp, you could map the filter to intercept all requests to the action servlet. In this way it will be called before the action servlet and action classes.
Note however that when you do action-action forwarding you will probably be logging the same post parameters again. Just check if that happens, I suppose it should, not sure though.
Also ensure that the filter is only a pre-processing filter and not a post-processing filter, otherwise you might face errors when forwarding requests to another action.
