Hi all,

I am new to Struts, can anyone help me out as to
How I can populate the Action Form's property with the value from the JSP in the Action class.

I have the following code in the JSP

and i have the property roleName in the Action Form which i want to set wih the value of varRoleName in the above function in the JSP.

How can I achieve this in the ACtion class ???

In the struts_config file I have given the <
input="the above jsp"
name="name of the Action Form"
type="the action class"

Thanks a lot.

I am pretty sure that case must match between your form and the parameters on the url. So if your form has a property roleId with a method setRoleId then the url should use "roleId". Struts will take care of populating the values in your form.
