Subject Re: Action Returning to previous page
Date Thu, 20 Jan 2005 03:02:48 GMT
Not positive I completely understand the question, so I'll make a very 
vague response.

You can:
1) Use the input attribute of an Action to specify the page that fed 
it - if the validate() method on the ActionForm() returns a non-empty 
ActionErrors, the user will go back there.
2) Specify a <forward /> for the Action that sends the user back to 
from whence they came.
3) Use request.getHeader("referer") to find out the page that got you 
here.  But you need to be careful - it's NOT mandatory for a client to 
send this header.  And you won't be able (AFAIK) to return a proper 
ActionForward for it - you'll just have to redirect the request and 
return null.
