public class: IteratorGeneratorTag [javadoc | source]

All Implemented Interfaces:
    BodyTag, IterationTag, Serializable


Generate an iterator based on the val attribute supplied.

NOTE: The generated iterator will ALWAYS be pushed into the top of the stack, and poped at the end of the tag. Example One:
Generate a simple iterator
<s:generator val="%{'aaa,bbb,ccc,ddd,eee'}">
     <s:property /><br/>
This generates an iterator and print it out using the iterator tag. Example Two:
Generate an iterator with count attribute
<s:generator val="%{'aaa,bbb,ccc,ddd,eee'}" count="3">
     <s:property /><br/>
This generates an iterator, but only 3 entries will be available in the iterator generated, namely aaa, bbb and ccc respectively because count attribute is set to 3 Example Three:
Generate an iterator with var attribute
<s:generator val="%{'aaa,bbb,ccc,ddd,eee'}" count="4" separator="," var="myAtt" />
 Iterator i = (Iterator) pageContext.getAttribute("myAtt");
 while(i.hasNext()) {
     String s = (String); %>
     <%=s%> <br/>
<%    }
This generates an iterator and put it in the PageContext under the key as specified by the var attribute. Example Four:
Generate an iterator with comparator attribute
<s:generator val="%{'aaa,bbb,ccc,ddd,eee'}" converter="%{myConverter}">
     <s:property /><br/>

public class GeneratorTagAction extends ActionSupport {


  public Converter getMyConverter() {
     return new Converter() {
         public Object convert(String value) throws Exception {
             return "converter-"+value;


This will generate an iterator with each entries decided by the converter supplied. With this converter, it simply add "converter-" to each entries.
