Struts 2 iterator control tag

s:iterator:

The iterator tag is used to iterate over a value. The value can be any of the java.util.Collection or java.util.Iterator.

Syntax: 

<s:iterator value="fieldValue">
        //do something
</s:iterator>
Note: The IteratorStatus class is used to get the iteration status details like count, even, odd etc. To use this functionality we have to declare the IteratorStatus class in the status attribute of the iterator tag.
