hi folks,
suppose i have two forms formA and formB associated with actionA and actionB. The two forms are on the same jsp. when actionA is invoked i want to auto-populate the field b in formB, is this possible? I tried the following:
in actionA.execute():
FormB =new FormB();
formB.setB(newVal);
request.setAttribute("formB",formB);
but this doesn't work..
any idea?
thanks!!
