A Method For Efficient Encoding Of Nested , Vector and List Object Data In Jakarta Struts Framework

Provided is an encoding scheme for a nested, vector and list data elements. This method will be then be used to encode an example nested data object.

For a nested object represent the object in the encoding as

<data element name>=<value 1>)<value 2>)...)<value N>

where, <data element name> is the name of the data element and <value 1>, <value 2 >,..., <value N> are the values of the nested data element. If a value is null then it is represented by the '!' character. The < data element name> can further be encoded by using a single alphabetic character.

For a vector and list object represent the object in the encoding as

<data element name>=<value M
1>)<value M

2>)...)<value M

k>(<value N
1>)<value N

2>)...)<

value N

j>(<value O
1>)<value O

2>)...)<value O

p>

where <data element name> is the name of the data element and >=<value M

1>,<value N

2>,...,<value O

the values of the p-th vector/list. If a value is null then it is represented by the '!' character. The < data element name> can further be encoded by using a single alphabetic character.
