What I want to do is everytime a particular action mapping is called in my web application - I want pass a particular value in the request.
I.e. - if I have /listCustomers.do - I want a request param associated with that to be menuValue="menuListCustomers" - likewise if I have an /editCustomer.do I would like an associated request param menuValue="menuEditCustomers".
I want to do this at a high level - like in the struts.cofig file or the like - of course, I can find every occurence in my application of where these action mappings are referenced as manually tack on ?menuValue=whatever but I want to avoid scattering it all over the place in my app.
struts provide an option of having some static parameter for every actionmapping ....ie through the parameter attriute for the action-mapping tag . This parameter u can get in execute method of ur action class saying mapping.getParmeter ()
