Struts Action vs DispatchAction

I have a piece of code, and I'll post it if necessary, but I suspect this is a known issue.

Works great if I use an Action class that has an execute() method.

I refactored it so that instead it uses a DispatchAction method. I pass in a parameter that tells it to call a save() method in it.

It works, EXCEPT:

If the validate() method of the ActionForm fails, I still get sent back to the jsp page (because of an input= line in the action mapping) BUT the user's input is gone, and the html:error tags telling the user what he did wrong don't show anything.

Is there something broken about DispatchAction???

Hmm. Do you have 'redirect="true"' in the forward?

No. I added it and no change.

I mispoke on one thing.

It IS reloading the jsp page and the data the user entered. I notice the url loses the sessionid when it does that though.

What it is not doing is showing the html errors. I am going to double check that the message resource bundle is working, but it was before.

Was a mapping resource issue. You get the points since you tried :-)
