Subject Creating an Action inside an Action
Date Wed, 22 Jan 2003 13:44:03 GMT
In the current API 1.1 beta3 which has changed.

I have an Action `Preloader' but I what to create or get another a reference
to Action `Activate'. What is the best way to do this.

public class Preloader extends DispatchAction {
	public void execute( ... ) {

		ActionServlet servlet = getServlet();
		RequestProcessor processor = servlet.getRequestProcessor();

		Action activateAction = processor.createActionCreate();


Unfortunately the `ActionServlet.getRequestProcessor' call is protected.
What I was to do is prepopulate the action form that is 
associated with `Activate' action mapping ?

		ActivateForm = magic_api.getActionForm( "/activate" );

Then I can dispatch forward to the activate mapping.

This is sort of like action chaining but difference.

Any ideas on the new best practice?
