i need to pass an object(ArrayList) to an action class...

<html-el:hidden property = "arrayListOfEmpData" value = "${element.arrayList_Of_EmpData}"/>

<a href = "ExcelD.do?arrayList_Of_EmpData=arrayListOfEmpData">Report in Excel</a>

i tried the above but it throws the following exception...


exception

You cannot create a single hidden field to pass an entire ArrayList of values. If you have an ArrayList of Strings, you can pass them by creating a hidden field for each element of the List and using indexed properties. See question 6 of the FAQ for more details on indexed properties.

A far easier way to do it would be just to put the ArrayList in session scope.
