      Description

      Hello,

      When using the s:a anchor tag you can get parameters with empty values ie ?foo= for null values.

      It would be good if there was a way to filter these out, similar to the struts.xml <param name="suppressEmptyParameters">true</param>. The <s:if> tags in the body are ignored. I either have to do it in programatically or use jstl

      ie possibly do something similar :

      from:

      <s:a action="eventAdd" accesskey="a">
      <s:text name="title.heading.eventadd" />
      <c:if test="${not empty bean.searchString}">
       <s:param name="bean.searchString" value="%{bean.searchString}" />
      </c:if>
      <c:if test="${not empty bean.filter}">
       <s:param name="bean.filter" value="%{bean.filter}" />
      </c:if>
      <s:param name="bean.pageNum" value="%{pager.pageNumber}" />
      </s:a>
      

      To:

      <s:a action="eventAdd" accesskey="a">
      <s:text name="title.heading.eventadd" />
      <s:param name="bean.searchString" value="%{bean.searchString}" />
      <s:param name="bean.filter" value="%{bean.filter}" />
      <s:param name="bean.pageNum" value="%{pager.pageNumber}" />
      <s:param name="suppressEmptyParameters" value="true"/>
      </s:a>
