An interceptor which sets action properties based on the interfaces an action implements. For example, if the action implements ParameterAware then the action context's parameter map will be set on it.

This interceptor is designed to set all properties an action needs if it's aware of servlet parameters, the servlet context, the session, etc. Interfaces that it supports are:

  • ServletContextAware
  • ServletRequestAware
  • ServletResponseAware
  • ParameterAware
  • RequestAware
  • SessionAware
  • ApplicationAware
  • PrincipalAware


  • None
