I have just reached Chapter 8 & 9 of your book.
I am facing a few problems with the code for the email client you provided.
When I try to display a single email message by clicking on the subject link, I get the form displayed with blank data fields.
For some reason the get “message” field in the MessageDetailsActionBean is not getting set to the clicked message. I tried some println statements and confirmed that….it prints null for the message field.
The same is the problem when trying to delete a few messages. The “selectedMessages” field is not getting set to the selected messages, and I get a NullPointerException on the browser.
And in the layout_folder.jsp the folder names are not getting displayed as links.
I have used the code as is provided from the site from folders “email_01” to “email_20”
Please help me solve these problems.
