Hi ,

I was wondering what is the best way to create Menu for navigation for e.g in the home page ? when using Struts tags...

1) If we make all of them as submit buttons and use dispatch action - then we need to have these methods in all the actions....I am not sure this is good way ....? or is there some other way

<html:submit name="create">SAVE AS NEW</html:submit>

name attribute is not available in html:submit so the text on the menu should be same as method in the action

as given in http://husted.com/struts/tips/012.html I am not sure "name"is deprecated...

2) Make them as links - then anybody can give little insight

More over if we have MyHomePage.jsp constituting of

MyHeader.jsp
MyNavigation.jsp
MyFooter.jsp

How best can we have navigation logic if it is going to be on all the pages of the application....

Any thoughts...or Ideas...

Thanks

I have not digged deep yet, But from the first glance it did not show me how do we integrate these menus with Struts Action or mapping...can you please tell me if these are some where in documentation...

You can specify a "forward" or an "action" attribute to link the menu items. Example
