Class PortletRequestUtils

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.springframework.web.portlet.bind.PortletRequestUtils

public abstract class PortletRequestUtils
extends java.lang.Object

Parameter extraction methods, for an approach distinct from data binding, in which parameters of specific types are required.

This approach is very useful for simple submissions, where binding request parameters to a command object would be overkill.
