But I will show you to get browser name and version of  IE > 6, Google Chrome And FF.

Here we have AGENT to rescue.Every browser has navigation object available in its script.In this object userAgent field contains current browser information.

I had told earlier,spring does binding behind.If we tell spring to increase it's size or set collection size behalf of spring.
You you can do it.

We have initBinder,  in Spring  it is called when spring does the binding mechanism
e.g @Mod…
