I have written the following bean with method to find books:

and the following action mapping:

The search bar appears on the BooksIndex.jsp page - which is being filled when site it being loaded.
When I press the search button for a book, I can see that I get a list of books, but the page is not being reloaded.
What could be the problem?

odelya, It seems like it could be several different things. Can you post the full code of the BooksIndex.jsp and your action please?

Thanks for the reply.
A. What other scope could be valid? I need it for a user session. Or I should use something else?
I agree. Here's the link:
