Property Tag (Data Tag) Example


In this section, we are going to describe the property tag. The property tag is a generic tag that is used to get the property of a value, which will default to the top of the stack if none is specified.

Add the following code snippet into the struts.xml file.


<action name="propertyTag" class="net.roseindia.propertyTag">

Create an action class as shown:

package net.roseindia;
import com.opensymphony.xwork2.ActionSupport;

public class propertyTag extends ActionSupport {
  public String execute() throws Exception{
  return SUCCESS;

Create a bean class "companyName" as shown:

package net.roseindia;

public class companyName {
  private String name;

  public void setName(String name){ =name ;

  public String getName(){
  return name;

Create a jsp using the tags.

<s:property value="%{name}" /> it prints the result of myBean's getMyBeanProperty() method.

<s:property value="name" default="Default Value" /> it prints the result of companyName's getName() method and if it is null, print 'a default value' instead.


<%taglib prefix="s" uri="/struts-tags" %>
