Subject RE: changing from *.do to /do/* screws up everything?
Date Wed, 27 Feb 2002 20:57:24 GMT

I have a SuccessAction which only has one line in the perform() method:

return mapping.findForward ("success");

This action is used for pass-through pages, including index.jsp.

So Ted, one small gap in my Struts knowledge (in terms of
best-practices) is, what's the recommended way to build a pass-through
Action which really does just display a JSP page?

I have a "signup.jsp" form, which for the sake of this discussion, is
going to be underneath WEB-INF. I really don't need any processing in an
action to execute prior to displaying the form -- I just want to link to
the (empty) form. Since I can't link directly to it, I need some kind of
really shallow Action to get at it. How do you usually build this?
