Hi all,

I am new to struts. I am facing the following problem.
I am trying to add and edit some items from the same jsp page. but the problem is whenever I am editing an item and after that I am trying to add something, insead of adding the new item it is updating the item I edited previously. It seems my ActionForm is holding the previous bean object. I have set the scope to request. I am using DispatchAction.
Following is the excerpt from struts-config.xml fo rdisplay of the add/edit page:

Following is the code from struts-config.xml for submitting the add/edit form:

Following is the excerpt from action class :

Plaese send me any suggestion you may have. I am really lost.
Thanks in advance.

Could you expand on "insead of adding the new item it is updating the item I edited previously"? When the page is show are all the fields populated with the previous item?

It might be that you need to add scope="request" to your itemAdd-display action mapping.
