      Description

      In some applications I have actions with a list member. That may be filled e.g. via checkboxlist. As we use Redirect-After-Post I want all list-elements to be present in redirect URL.

      The framework provided ServletRedirectResult uses
      StrutsResultSupport.conditionalParse()
      which in turn uses
      TextParseUtil.translateVariables()
      to resolve variables present as parameter values of a redirect result.

      Those methods convert the found object into String. When a collection is found just toString() is invoked. That is not quite useful.

      I would like to duplicate the URL-parameter-name for each element in the found collection.

      Therefore I added new Methods (with javadoc and tests):

      • StrutsResultSupport.conditionalParseCollection()
      • TextParseUtil.translateVariablesCollection()
        and using them in ServletRedirectResult.

      URL building itself does already support collections as paramter values.

      The problem was just that TextParseUtil forced the collection found on ValueStack into a string.
