Hi i am working with struts and hibernate currently....and i am facing a problem....

I hav a JSP in which according to the no. of entries in the DB , number of textboxes are generated dynamically using

logic:iterate(it iterates "List's Length" no. of times)......I have successfully retrived the data from the DB and displayed

on the JSP....but the USER of the system may wish to EDIT and REINSERT it in DB...but since they are dynamically

generated...there are no getters and setters for them in the ACTION FORM....what should i do for insertion..........

can anybody suggest any idea for this problem....please help me!!!

hi khushi,
you can make the name attribute of all the textfields generated same(name="TField"), and make an String array and its getter amd setter methods[get/setTField(String [] _tFields)]. the struts will autometically fill in this field in form bean.

hope this work with you too(it worked in mine case).

The best way to deal with this type of scenario in Struts is to use "Indexed Properties". You will find an explanation of how to use indexed properties along with a simple example in the JavaRanch Struts FAQ, question number 6.
