i have another question.

I'am trying to search the database based on multiple fields.
for example in a library i can search a book by author, title and publishing company.
I want a single submit button.
Now if the user enters author and title, leaves publisher empty then hits submit.

How would i implement this functionality , i dont know if this is a struts specific question. but i would like to do it using struts(if possible)

Well when you submit the form, you will be populating the form elements for those html text fields. Thus you can view those form parameters in your action class and use logic based on that data.

I guess little knowledge is a bad thing after all....
solution this simple, I did not even think about it.

Thanks Andy
