This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I was wondering if there was some kind of "default" method in a LookUpDispatchAction, so that I could use mapping.findForward() from another Action. I must call that LookUpDispatchAction exactly as if I were calling a "normal" Action, I can't add any parameters or attributes in the request/session.
It sounds like you want to chain Actions and I would consider some refactoring. The business logic from the DispatchAction should probably be moved out to a delegate so other actions can call the logic without having to chain to the DispatchAction.
A good workman is known by his tools.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
