Struts 2 Bean Tag Example

Struts 2 Bean Tag is helpful for assigning a bean reference to the JSP page. Using the s:param attribute, you can pass the values to the bean reference and set the values. After this tag is executed, you can use the bean instance throughout the page.

1. Action Class and Bean

Struts2HelloWorldAction.java

package javabeat.net.struts2;

public class Struts2HelloWorldAction {
	private String userName;

	public String getUserName() {
		return userName;
	}

	public void setUserName(String userName) {
		this.userName = userName;
	}
	public String execute(){
		return "success";
	}
}

UserDetails.java

package javabeat.net.struts2;

public class UserDetails {
	private String name;
	private String city;
	public UserDetails(){}
	public UserDetails(String... args){
		this.name = args[0];
		this.city = args[1];
	}
	public String getName() {
		return name;
	}
	public void setName(String name) {
		this.name = name;
	}
	public String getCity() {
		return city;
	}
	public void setCity(String city) {
		this.city = city;
	}

}
