Hello
Is it possible/good technique to use the form bean's getters to manipulate form variables before passed on to an Action? In particular want to change String fileName to File fileName, String milliSecs to long milliSecs in the bean getter. Is it advised? tia.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
