use of HttpServletRequestWrapper

does anyone know how to modify a httpservletrequest in a struts action? (I know I can use httpservletrequestwrapper, but how/where do we set it? since the "request" in "action" is discarded after execute(.) -it's scoped locally.) In other words, how do we modify the request before the resource specify in "ActionForward" is executed?


-I am waiting for download of struts source to see how the request is passed/used with ActionForward - that is, the class that "drives" the action...which might show some clues.

ok - it looks like I can extend org.apache.struts.action.RequestProcessor and/or use ComposableRequestProcessor for this - Is there an easier way, anyone?

We have a forum dedicated to Struts.
Your question will probably do better there so I'll move it for you.
