I have an entity class Article.java with 3 boolean attributes: spam, miscategorized, prohibited along with some other attributes. I map them to db using Hibernate.
I take user input for the other attributes and save the object. those 3 boolean attributes are set to false initially.
later when the users view the Articles on a jsp page, they see 3 checkboxes: spam, miscategorized, prohibited where they can just check them & the according field will be set to true on the database.
how do I do this? on this view page, the user will not submit any form, they will just view the article content, rate them (if necessary) and go back.
do i need to call a struts action when any checkbox is checked? how do i do that? or is there any other solution?
