Subject Re: Struts doesn't execute my ActionForm.

With most Container's you always want to lock down the WEB-INF 
directory from any external access. If you use the container with 
lets say apache you would use the <Location> Override all deny etc.. 
to keep users out of this directory. Again though this is coming from 
the jsp/Servlet standpoint. With Struts framework you are using 
RequestDispatchers to access the files which will not reveal the 
location of the file and you should be able to access it because its 
not going through tcp/ip. So yes it will work but not recommend by 
several books I have read.
