Subject Re: ActionForm 'reset' method being called when JSP is rendered
Date Thu, 19 Jun 2003 11:56:24 GMT
In Struts 1.0.2 and later, reset is called by the html:form tag *if* the 
ActionForm is being instantiated at that time. The scope shouldn't matter.

Also remember that the html:form tag is looking at the Action to which 
it submits, which may not be "Action 1". If these are the same Action, 
or share the same formbean under the same attribute, then the ActionForm 
should already exist, and reset should not be called.
