Subject Re: Submitting form does nothing
Date Mon, 26 Jul 2004 21:32:36 GMT
```I just downloaded the source code, and stepped through it. I set breakpoints
in the init() method, the doGet(), the doPost(), and the process() methods.
On the pages that aren't working, none of those breakpoints get called.
Obviously I'm not familiar with the ActionServlet code...is there anywhere
else I should be setting breakpoints to try and trap this?

Thanks so much for your help,
Claire

Hmmmmm... the only think I can think of next is to step through the
ActionServlet code itself.  You may have done this, but I understood you to
have set the break point in either the action or the jsp page...
Wish I could help more....
