The problem I am having is when a user enters the values into the form and submits it. If any one of the user inputted values are invalid, then I get the action to forwards back to the input page. In doing so all the values that the user inputed in the form are lost. Is there any way in which these values can be stored, apart from cookies.
This shouldn't happen. Are you using the struts custom tags in your JSP? By this I mean <html:text> , <html:select>, <html:checkbox>, etc. If you use the struts tags along with a struts form bean, populating the fields is done for you when returning from a validation error. If you use the standard html tags, it is not.
I am having a similar problem i am using all struts only still getting it but only in html:select others like html:text are coming fine, is it something special with html:select, for more information on my error please read my full problem under heading html:select vanishing values just after this topic Thanks
