if you have a document whose content has to be entered by a user, you can offer him all of the edit fields on one page. This is the way, the generator of X-Application creates its pages.

However, in case of very large documents it is not ergonomic to present its edit fields on one page. You should spread the forms over multiple JSP pages.

One of your simple examples, LoopInsDel explains this topic.

To implement sub-pages:

  • Work with document names within form tags and queries and browse tags to identify documents within our session.

  • Use elementaction tags of type select to edit occurrences.

  • Use link tags to change from a sub-page to the parent page without invoking a commit action.

I hope, this rough description and the documentation of X-Application will help you to solve your problem.


Hi killer,

I just posted a tutorial in the contribution forum which addresses the question of yours:

the documentation about splitting JSP pages is part of the documentation of X-Application 3.1.3.
