u can make use of pager taglibrary

Check out the site documentation for setting up etc...

following is the ex. template
<%@ page contentType="text/html;charset=ISO-8859-1" language="java" %>
<%@ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/struts-bean.tld" prefix="bean" %>
<%@ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/struts-html.tld" prefix="html" %>
<%@ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/struts-logic.tld" prefix="logic" %>
<%@ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/pager-taglib.tld" prefix="pg" %>

<!-- Making use of page tag library -->
<pg:pager maxIndexPages="25" maxPageItems="20" export="currentPageNumber=pageNumber">
  <pg:param name="pg"/>
  <pg:param name="q"/>

<logic:present name="someList">
<logic:notEmpty name="someList">
    <logic:iterate id="element" name="someList">
      <tr><td>...</td><td></td> ........</tr>
      <tr><td>...</td><td></td> ........</tr>
      <tr><td>...</td><td></td> ........</tr>
<logic:empty name="someList" >
<br />
<!-- this is for page indexing ** starts here**-->
    <font face=Helvetica size=-1 color=ActiveCaption>Result Pages:
    <pg:prev>&nbsp;<a href="<bean:write name="pageUrl" />" style="text-decoration:none">[&lt;&lt; Prev]</a></pg:prev>
      if (pageNumber.intValue() < 10) {
      if (pageNumber == currentPageNumber) {
        %><b><%= pageNumber %></b><%
      } else {
        %><a href="<bean:write name="pageUrl" />" style="text-decoration:none"><%= pageNumber %></a><%
    <pg:next>&nbsp;<a href="<bean:write name="pageUrl" />" style="text-decoration:none">[Next &gt;&gt;]</a></pg:next>

JavaScript Best Practices

Save hours in development time and avoid common mistakes by learning the best practices to use for JavaScript.

Then best bet is to have a database based paging. In mysql u can make use of LIMIT clause and in Oracle you can make use of rownum.

ok here is the the complete situation, I have a arraylist size is 20 and need to display 5 a page . it is not some thing related to the database.

I need to write a program using the logic iterate and struts action class.
ok. for such a small list..u don't really need db. try with the following
1st page
<logic:iterate id="element" name="someList" offset="1" length="5">

2nd page
<logic:iterate id="element" name="someList" offset="6" length="5">
and -.....

generate the pager links...and add offset as parameter to make a generalise handling.
mgoutham22Author Commented:
The list size is not fixed.
mgoutham22Author Commented:
List size will be less than or equal to 20 .
there is no handling with the list size. Why do u have doubts with list size? Only thing we did is set the offset and length to display till 5.
