I fixed a struts error recently because of changes in the Introspector class from JDK 1.3.1_08 and above. The error looks something like this

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Property 'displayContracts' is not indexed

The solution is to change the struts tag from something like

bean.displayContracts['counter'].property

to

bean.indexedDisplayContracts['counter'].property

The corresponding bean should have an indexed getter and setter like below

Type getIndexed<type>(int index)
void setIndexed<type>(int index, Type T)

I just chose to add the word "indexed". It is not necessary to follow that format. The indexed getters and setters should return a type based on the index passed and the the classic getters and setters can be retained to access the variable in a normal way. This way you can access the variable with both the classic getters and the indexed getters thus solving the problem. Just posting to let others know how to solve this. For more information

P.S - Can a Mod please lock this topic ?

John,

Thanks for providing that insight. Your contribution is much appreciated.

However, we do not lock topics in this forum. I believe there is an even better option, though. I added your post to the JavaRanch Struts FAQ as question number 13.

I think you might be able to edit it if you want. Try clicking the "Edit this page" link at the bottom of your entry. Then make a small change and click the "commit" button. If you want changes made, and for some reason it's not letting you commit changes, just let me know and I'll change it.

Merrill
