Hi everybody,

I am faced to a problem that is manage the Httpsession when doing an Ajax request.
I am using Struts 2 and Jquery ajax.
I can manage the HttpSession when I use struts action without ajax. I mean I can put object to my session I get it later.
When I am using $.ajax blablabla , I put object in my session but I can not get it later...

Here is my code :


type: "POST",
data: { type: google.maps.drawing.OverlayType.POLYGON, coordonnees: coordonnees },
url: "<s:url action="getDestinataireFromZone" namespace="/map" />",
success: function(data){
$("#destinataire").html("<strong>Nombre de destinataires sélectionné : </strong>" + data);


public class MapAction extends AbstractAction{
public String getDestinataireFromZone(){

getSession().put("listeDestinataire", listDestinataireFromSession);
inputStream = new StringBufferInputStream(String.valueOf(listDestinataireFromSession.size()));

return SUCCESS;



<action name="getDestinataireFromZone" method="getDestinataireFromZone" class="MapAction">
<result name="success" type="stream">
<param name="contentType">text/html</param>
<param name="inputName">inputStream</param>

I am stucked...

Please Help me

Best Regards

Please provide full details to diagnose your problem.

ocjp 6 — Feeding a person with food is a great thing in this world. Feeding the same person by transferring the knowledge is far more better thing. The reason is the amount of satisfaction which we get through food is of only one minute or two. But the satisfaction which we can get through the knowledge is of life long.
