Struts 2.0, persist data across requests

I have a class TestAction which has two action methods.

class TestAction {
List<Item> items = new ArrayList<Item>();
// getter and setter methods for items

public String execute(){
//populate items

public String modifyItems(){
//modify items on the list

when I call execute, i populate.
In my next request, i call modifyItems(), and this should modify the item list.

Currently, we are storing the list onto the session in the execute() method and retrieveing in the modifyItems() method.

Is there anything in struts 2.0 using which i can achieve the same?

I agree. Here's the link:
