I display an arraylist that contains an object of type DTO in a group of text boxes in a jsp page using logic:iterate and bean:write

How do I send back this arraylist (in the form of the dto)if the user changes the values in the page?

Thanks in advance.

1. try using nested:iterate and nested:write (although i'm not sure how your users are going to change the values if you're using write...)
2. make sure your form is in session scope in your struts-config.
I think that's how I did it...

You will need to use indexed properties. This link will explain how to do it.
