Subject [struts2] <s:submit>'s method attribute doesn't work
Date Mon, 12 Nov 2012 06:41:02 GMT
Hi,

I'm using struts-2.3.4 and running apache tomcat 7.

I have a form in search.jsp. There are two submit buttons: "Search"
and "Add New" button. I had set each button with their own method
attribute:

<s:form name="searchForm" action="employeeAction" method="post">
    <s:textfield name="id" label="Employee ID"/>
    <s:textfield name="name" label="Employee Name"/>

    <s:submit value="Search" method="doSearch"/>
    <s:submit value="Add New" method="doAddNew"/>
</s:form>


In struts.xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<!DOCTYPE struts PUBLIC
    "-//Apache Software Foundation//DTD Struts Configuration 2.3//EN"
    "http://struts.apache.org/dtds/struts-2.3.dtd">

<struts>

    <constant name="struts.enable.DynamicMethodInvocation" value="false" />
    <constant name="struts.devMode" value="true" />

    <package name="default" namespace="/" extends="struts-default">

        <global-results>
            <result name="error">/error.jsp</result>
        </global-results>

        <global-exception-mappings>
            <exception-mapping exception="java.lang.Exception" result="error"/>
        </global-exception-mappings>

    </package>

    <package name="example" namespace="/example" extends="default">

        <action name="employeeAction" class="example.EmployeeAction">
           <result name="search">/example/search.jsp</result>
           <result name="add">/example/add.jsp</result>
        </action>

    </package>
</struts>


In EmployeeAction class:

public class EmployeeAction extends ActionSupport {

    private static final Logger logger =
Logger.getLogger(EmployeeAction.class);    //log4j

    @Override
    public String execute() throws Exception {

        logger.info("Calling execute!");

        return SUCCESS;
    }

    public String doSearch() throws Exception {

        logger.info("Calling doSearch!");

        return "search";
    }

    public String doAddNew() throws Exception {

        logger.info("Calling doAddNew!");

        return "add";
    }
}

The problem is when I clicked "Search" or "Add New" button in jsp, the
method doSearch() or doAddNew() was never called, instead execute()
method was called.

What is wrong with my code above? Anyone know?
