I would like to have a pop-up screen update the formbean on the parent page. The design of this is getting pretty nastey.
I have a page that creates a user object - user_create.jsp
I have a pop-up that alows you to enter an address - address_create.jsp
A user can have 1..N addresses. I want the user_create page to allow for the pop-up and subsequent creation of multiple addresses.

Here's one possible way to do it:
Make one of the properties of your create-user form bean to be a List of Address objects
Make "session" the scope of the create-user form bean
Specify a target attribute on the <html:form> tag in the create-address
which refers to the main page. That way, when the action completes, the results will be displayed on the main page.
Have the create-address action retrieve the create-user form bean from the HttpSession object and update it with the address that was just added.
Have the create-address action forward to the create-user jsp.
It is sorta covered in the
