Hi,

I'm relatively new to Struts 2 and am trying to create a session bean that will hold a list of manufacturers.
In a JSP using Struts 1 tags I might do something like

to set the bean from an already defined service bean.
Is there an equivalent in Struts 2? Or am I looking at another method of achieving the same?

Thanks in advance.

Well, I'm not convinced that kind of logic belongs in the JSP page. If you already have the manufacturers available then why not just do it in the action? IMO the view layer shouldn't be responsible for defining application-wide behavior.

Thanks, David. You make a good point.
I'll do it that way instead.

(I should have answered the question anyway; the equivalent tag would be <s:set>, although to be honest I've never used it to do anything other than create action-scoped temporary variables.)
