Subject [jira] Commented: (WW-2661) ** does not match the backslach character when mapping wildcards in struts.xml
Date Fri, 30 May 2008 18:36:05 GMT


Becky O'Sullivan commented on WW-2661:

Unfortunately, adding 

<constant name="struts.enable.SlashesInActionNames" value="true"/> 

breakes my filter dispatcher (/web/*) because I had removed the .action extension from struts
actions. We're basically trying to make the URL as easy to understand as possible for our
end users. 

So with .. 
a filter dispatcher /web/* 
an action name <action name="/content**" ...> 
and <constant name="struts.enable.SlashesInActionNames" value="true"/> in struts.xml

It no longer recognizes any actions: 

All produce the same error: "There is no Action mapped for action name /web/ ... "

> The Developers Guide (a great guide, by the way) states that two asterisks ( ** ) will
match zero or more characters, including the slash character, for action names:
> So I interpret that to mean:
> <action  name="/edit**"   class="">
>    <result>/myPage.jsp</result>
> </action>
> Would work for the following URLs:
> http://myDomain/edit
> http://myDomain/editabc
> http://myDomain/edit/abc
> It does work for all words that begin with edit (http://myDomain/editabc)
> However, it is not allowing the slash character (http://myDomain/edit/abc)
> When it encounters a slash after edit it assumes the following text is an action name
and returns an error like this:
> "There is no Action mapped for action name abc."
> Did I misinterpret the page's explanation?
