How do I add action to a common element (header.jsp) for tile layout?

Hi Hong Yi,
If I understand your question, you want to use header.jsp in several tiles?.?.
That being the case, you can extend a tile from a parent. Example:
Suppose you have an action mapping in your struts-config.xml to display your home page, which you want to incorporate header.jsp
<action path="/ShowHome" type="org.apache.struts.actions.ForwardAction" parameter="tile:showhome" />
In your tiles-defs.xml, do the following:
<definition name="tile:layout" path="/jsp/common/layout.jsp"> <put name="page.header" value="/jsp/common/header.jsp" /> </definition> <definition name="tile:showhome" extends="tile:layout"> <put name="page.body" value="/jsp/content/home.jsp" /> </definition>
In this case, tile:showhome inherits tile:layout which contains header.jsp.
Now, in layout.jsp, do something like this:
<%@ taglib uri='http://jakarta.apache.org/struts/tags-tiles' prefix='tiles' %> <!-- html header (not header.jsp) stuff goes here --> <body> <!-- tile for header.jsp --> <tiles:insert attribute="page.header" /> <!-- tile for page body --> <tiles:insert attribute="page.body" /> </body> <!-- html closing tags -->
Now, you can reuse layout by extending it in other tiles and changing the page.body name attribute to whatever jsp applies for the other pages.
I hope that answers your question...
