DisplayTag 1.2 Form Submission Problem

Prior to 1.2, all the links generated by displaytag are Http Get only, which prevented it from being integrated into many web applications. Including ours. Those links includes paging/sorting and exporting links.

I had to solve the problem by using a customized TableTag along with custom javascript code. The solution was applied around the 1st week of December.

DisplayTag 1.2, released Dec. 27, 2008, solves the form submission problem. Now The paging/sorting links can actually be Http Post instead of Get. Woot!

However, they must have forgot the export link - it's still get only... Another custom patch...

Well one day I'll have to contribute it back to the open source project. Too busy recently.

Well well... why another J2EE blog? I benefited from other people's technical blogs, and guess what, it's a good idea to contribute some of my works too. Hope it's helpful and useful, to all of your folks.
