Subject Re: action class not being called for repeat initial requests when using validation

John
There are a number of solutions I would suggest looking at JBuilder doc 
located at
http://bdn.borland.com/borcon2004/article/paper/0,1963,32246,00.html

the fastest way is for your button to route to your jsp page is to route to 
the page identified by the action mapping in struts-config.xml For example 
here is a form which routes to logon page URI when username, password are 
satisfied and submit is called
<%@ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/struts-html.tld" prefix="html" %><html:form 
action="logon.do" focus="userName"><br>        User Name: <html:text 
maxlength="16" property="userName" size="16"/><br />        Password: 
<html:text maxlength="16" property="password" size="16"/><br /><html:submit

value="Submit" property="Submit"/><html:reset value="Reset"/></html:form>you

could also place in a html:link to forward such as <html:link forward="Home">
whereas Home idenitifies a URI which you will link to
from the definition associated with 'home' in the Global forwards defined in 
struts-config.xml
