    Default Struts 2 and extjs 4 integration

    Hi All,

    I am new to extjs and struts 2 both. But I am quite familiar with struts 1.3.

    Can you please point me to sample reference code for struts 2 and extjs integration ?

    My requirement is as follows:
    1. There is a form containing four 3 fields [name, address, ph no] along with Save [submit] button.
    - Previously when I was working on struts 1.3, i could have created a jsp file with the ready made JSTL library tags for elements on a page
    - But now I am using extjs, so everything i.e. form, text fields, buttons will get wrap into a app.js file and in a html/JSP page, i simply include the js file

    2. On click of Save, the form should get submitted server side action class automatically.
    - In previous version, i was using form bean and populate the data into action class.
    - Now in struts 2 how should i get it ? [I believe there is no form bean in struts 2, then how form data will get into action class ?]

    3. The values from server side should get reflected into text fields automatically, when user visit the page next time.
    - In previous version of struts, it was achieved through form bean
    - How we can do this with the help of extjs and struts 2?

    Kindly guide me.

    The only thing you really need to integrate it is to pass data to and from the client using JSON or XML.
