Hi there,

I have a form (MyForm) that has a bean (Car). The Action (MyAction) sets the value of the car property.

Then I want to show in the .jsp file the properties inside the Car bean (model, year...)

after the action sets the property the jsp has the following:

<logic resent name="myForm" property="car">
Car model <bean:write name="car" property="model"/><br>
</logic resent>

but it doesn't works, says that the bean car is not present.

When I do

<logic resent name="myForm" property="car">
Car model <bean:write name="myForm" property="car"/><br>
</logic resent>

it prints the car.toString

I need to get the car and then print its properties.

any help?

thanks

Mike,
It's a two step process. First get a reference to the car:
<bean:define id="myCar" name="myForm" property="car" />

Then print out the model:
<bean:write name="car" property="model" />

Another option is to use "dot" notation. Example:

This will cause Struts to perform the following method calls:
