public class SearchAction
extends BaseAction

Struts action class that corresponds to the search results page. Used for requests to "/".

The execute method of this class retrieves information from the database for the list of products in the system matching a given search string and puts it in the request scope for use by the view layer. Given a SearchForm with its searchString property populated, it creates and initializes an instance of ProductList. It then invokes ProductProcessor.getProductList(ProductList) to load the product list information from the database. It puts the initialized ProductList object in the request scope as an attribute with the name "productList".

An instance of CartDiscountProcessor is also instantiated and place in the request scope as an attribute named "cartDiscountProcessor", to help in the display of discounts applicable to the user.
