Hi,
I am evaluating Display Tag , to see if it fits our pagination requirements.

If you observe the following snippet , the pagination works as intended as mentioned in the site .
But for every page link clicked the request is sent to action class and the execute method is fired again.

My Queries
1. Is there a way to avoid calling of execute method for each page click .As i would be fetching the entire list the first time when the page loads


I tried investigating on this , not much of luck ? Or am i missing something obvious


Can anyone please help me out here.

You could put the list in a static field if its always going to be static. If not you can also use wildcard mapping for the methods in your action.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
