I'm trying find a way to have a more robust mapping of multibox data from a jsp page to a struts form. My question is, is the multibox tag bound specifically to a String Array in the struts form? Or could I use something like a map, or list, etc...something that is a bit more dynamic?
For example...if my multibox is bound to a property in my form called "selectedThings," does "selectedThings" have to be a String?
Bryan, this struts API link says that it takes only primitive array types may be not Maps..

Yeah, that limits the robustness a bit.
As a solution I simply created a String inside one of my beans which was a field in the form. Although it added a layer of complexity when linking the specific checkbox with the specific String in each bean, it works well.
Finally it is done, may be you can have a wrapper/generic class (since ther is no more upgrade to the struts version (1.x) being used) like formHelper which would help you for other similiar scenarios in future as well..
Anyways, its good to be closed
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
