The Struts 2 plug-in INLINE

is designed to capture bread crumbs. It can be configured many ways

.

This Struts 2 plug-in is designed to capture bread crumbs when the "breadCrumbs" interceptor is included. This plug-in
can be activated by incorporating it with your registered interceptors.

  • Can be configured to suit many different requirements
  • Utilizes native framework functionality

The plug-in extends struts-default so you can extend the "breadcrumb" package to get these additional features.

====================== A sample configuration ====================== <struts> <package name="strutsSchool" extends="tiles-default,com.strutsschool.interceptors.breadcrumbs"> <interceptors> <interceptor-stack name="strutsschoolStack"> <interceptor-ref name="defaultStack"></interceptor-ref> <interceptor-ref name="breadCrumbs"> <param name="wildCardSeparator">_</param> <param name="uniqueCrumbsOnly">true</param> <param name="getRequestsOnly">true</param> <param name="crumbMax">24</param> <param name="excludeMethods">save,update,remove</param> </interceptor-ref> </interceptor-stack> </interceptors> <default-interceptor-ref name="strutsschoolStack"/> </package> ... </struts>

The collection of captured requests are stored in session as Crumb objects which expose behavior sensitive to the respective web request.

==================== A sample page region ==================== <div class="breadcrumbs" style="float: left; width: 100%;"> <span> <s:iterator value="%{#session['com.strutsschool.interceptors.breadcrumbs']}" status="status"> <s:if test="#status.index > 0"> &#187; </s:if> <s:url id="uri" action="%{action}" namespace="%{nameSpace}"/> <nobr><s:a href="%{uri}"><s:property value="wildPortionOfName"/></s:a></nobr> </s:iterator> </span> </div>
