I have developed a news application in which a user can post new news with title,description and an image upload.I can approve the news and user then can see the approved news. Now the problem is if the userputs some link like more on www.bbc.com in description text area,then it goes like a text and get displayed as a text.I want to see the link on approved news page,How should I do that. Do i need to add a new section in post news to post the links.Also how links will get stored in database.I am using MySQL. Thanks a lot!

You can store the link in the database as html text, for example:
You can then display it using a <bean:write> tag as long as you specify filter="false". This tells struts not to filter out or escape html tags found in the text.
