Struts2 checkboxlist UI tag rendering one item per line
After struggling with this UI tag for a some time today, I gave up and was attempting to use s:checkbox inside of an s:iterator to render one item per line, unsuccessfully.

So, upon revisiting s:checkboxlist, I found that it's a relatively painless thing to override the checkboxlist.ftl file described here,, add a break at the end of this line

<label for="${}-${itemCount}" class="checkboxLabel">${itemValue?html}</label><br />
and save the file in the webapp/template/simple dir of my web application.

Hello, all!

I've maintained a blog for several years on my own server, and decided it was time to move to a lower maintenance solution. Spaces looked like a good choice, so here goes!

Most of my posts will be technically oriented, simply because there's never enough good information when looking for a solution to a tough problem. Blogging serves as documentation for myself, as much as it does for anyone else trying to solve the same or similar problems.

I have experience using Java, CSS, HTML, JavaScript, Struts 2, Maven 2, Hibernate 3 and other Open Source and Internet technologies. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.
