Struts 2 s:url and s:a data tags


<s:url>:

The <s:url tag is used to generate an url string. It can take parameters.

Syntax: <s:url value=”urlString” var=”varName” />

<s:a>:

The <s:a> tag is used to create a hyperlink.

Syntax: <s:a href=”%{varName}”>Text to be displayed</s:a>

Suggestion: Use s:url tag to generate url sting and then use it in the s:a tag.

Example:

test.jsp

<%@ taglib uri="/struts-tags" prefix="s"%>
<html>
	<head>
		<title>Struts 2 s:url and s:a data tag example</title>
	</head>
	<body>
		<h3>This is a s:url and s:a data data tag example.</h3>
 
		<h4>Generated url string from s:url</h4>
		<s:url action="Test.action" >
		    <s:param name="website">www.javawithease.com</s:param>
		</s:url>
 
		<h4>Use of s:url generated string in s:a</h4>
		<s:url action="Test.action" var="actionUrl">
		    <s:param name="website">www.javawithease.com</s:param>
		</s:url>
 
		<s:a href="%{actionUrl}">Click here</s:a>
 
	</body>
</html>
