Struts 2 s:append control tag

:

The s:append control tag is used to append the two or more iterator values into a single iterator value. It uses s:param tag to take the iterator values as parameters.

Syntax:

<s:append var="varName">
     <s:param value="%{iterator1}" />
     <s:param value="%{iterator2}" />
</s:append>
Note: First all elements of first iterator will be iterated, then all elements of second iterator and so on.
