Parameter Remover Interceptor

This is interceptor allows parameters (matching one of the paramNames value) to be removed from the parameter map if they match a certain value (matching one of the paramValues value), before they are set on the action. A typical usage would be to want a dropdown/select to map onto a boolean value on an action. The select had the options none, yes and no with values -1, true and false. The true and false would map across correctly. However the -1 would be set to false.

This was not desired as one might needed the value on the action to stay null. This interceptor fixes this by preventing the parameter from ever reaching the action.


Extending the Interceptor

There are no obvious extensions to the existing interceptor.
