Subject Re: Auto execution of an action on page display
Date Wed, 29 Jan 2003 18:49:52 GMT
Two follow-on questions to the suggestion:

1) Will this initial servlet be able to hand over
   control to Struts for all other actions?

2) Should the ActionServlet itself be extended to 
   accomplish these actions, or does a separate
   servlet make more sense?  TIA.

have you considered setting it up as a servlet instead
and do a load on
startup in web.xml?

Subject: Auto execution of an action on page display

I'm a newbie to Struts, and would like to know if its
possible for Struts to automatically execute an Action
upon the display of the initial page?  I would like to
avoid having the user click on something to initiate
certain user-specific house-keeping tasks, if
possible.  TIA.


P.S. Initiating this action as part of the Login
is not possible, since this application does not
the use of a login process.
