I have seen a Application , which used Struts 1.2 Framework for building User Interface .
When a Request is made from a Jsp Page , Inside the Action class , data is extracted from the FormBean and creates a new DTO and this DTO is actually passed to the DAO Layer for DataBase insertion .
Can you please tell me what is the advanatage we get in this rather than directly submitting the FormBean to the DAO Layer .
