struts & tiles - passing a file name using tiles

We are presently using
We are also using tiles .
In our Tiles layout - we have a common header , left navigation and a footer
The main body changes as per the page requested.
Previously we had a screen specific
- just a wrapper JSP
This jsp would include the common template and we would pass the actual body required.
Here is what we were doing previously -
<jsp:param name="myBody" value="loginBody.jsp" />
This was what we were doing previously .
Now when I am using tiles here is what I am doing ( in tiles.xml ) :
<definition name="logon" page="/login/logon.jsp"> <put name="commonTemplate" value="/myApp/WebcastTemplate.jsp"/>
Here is the common Template definition
<definition name="commonTemplate" page="/CommonTemplate.jsp"> <put name="commonHeader" value="/CommonHeader.jsp"/> <put name="Nav" value="/CommonNav.jsp"/> <put name="Footer" value="/CommonFooter.jsp"/> [B]<put name="Body" value="/login/LoginBody.jsp"/> <put name="Body" value="/list/ListBody.jsp"/>[/B]
The above code is an example
How do I dynamically pick the JSP in the common template and show it ?
Is there a possibility in tiles to pass a jsp to the other tile similar to <jsp:inlcude /> & <jsp:param /> ?
Thanks in advance ,

What you can do here is put the jsp file in some property entry and use same <tiles
ut> to pick it. like
<tiles :-P ut name="somepage" value="app.somepage" />
now you need to change the jsp page in resource bundle only.
I agree. Here's the link:
