Struts forwarding problem.


I want my success to include a property key-value pair.  So far it isn't working.

1.  Try #1:

    <action    path="/customersValidate"
               type="com.saferX.web.action.CustomersAction"
               name="customersForm"
              scope="session"
              input="success"
           validate="true">
      <forward name="successAdmin"              path="tiledef.listCust"/>
      <forward name="success"                              path="/customers.do?dispatch=save" >
    </action>

javax.servlet.UnavailableException: Parsing error processing resource path
/WEB-INF/struts-config.xml
      at org.apache.struts.action.ActionServlet.handleConfigException(ActionServlet.java:739)
      at org.apache.struts.action.ActionServlet.parseModuleConfigFile(ActionServlet.java:715)
      at org.apache.struts.action.ActionServlet.initModuleConfig(ActionServlet.java:670)
      at org.apache.struts.action.ActionServlet.init(ActionServlet.java:329)
      at javax.servlet.GenericServlet.init(GenericServlet.java:69)


2.  Try #2:    The struts DTD says that 'set-property' can be a child of 'forward'

   <action    path="/customersValidate"
               type="com.saferX.web.action.CustomersAction"
               name="customersForm"
              scope="session"
              input="success"
           validate="true">
      <forward name="successAdmin"              path="tiledef.listCust"/>
      <forward name="success"                              path="/customers.do" >
        <set-property name="dispatch" value="save"/>
      </forward>
    </action>

throws exception:
  javax.servlet.UnavailableException: Parsing error processing resource path
        /WEB-INF/struts-config.xml
      at org.apache.struts.action.ActionServlet.handleConfigException(ActionServlet.java:739)
      at org.apache.struts.action.ActionServlet.parseModuleConfigFile(ActionServlet.java:715)
      at org.apache.struts.action.ActionServlet.initModuleConfig(ActionServlet.java:670)
      at org.apache.struts.action.ActionServlet.init(ActionServlet.java:329)
      at javax.servlet.GenericServlet.init(GenericServlet.java:69)


Try #3:  Displays a clean screen but doesn't have the key-value pair.

    <action    path="/customersValidate"
               type="com.saferX.web.action.CustomersAction"
               name="customersForm"
              scope="session"
              input="success"
           validate="true">
      <forward name="successAdmin"              path="tiledef.listCust"/>
      <forward name="success"                              path="customers.do" />
    </action>


How do I pass the key value pair to my action:forward method?

Its displaying a clean screen because

<forward name="success"                         path="customers.do" />

is not getting forwarded correctly . where is  customers.do  going?  Which method are you calling when customers.do is invoked? Is your Action class extending DispatchAction ?

>>>>How do I pass the key value pair to my action:forward method?

not sure what you mean. if you want to pass two parametres called KEY and VALUE , you can do this:

  <forward name="success"     path="/customers.do?key=KEY&amp;value=VALUE" >

 **       &amp; is equavalant of  "&"

Here is customers.do

    <action    path="/customers"
               type="com.saferX.web.action.CustomersAction"
               name="customersForm"
              scope="session"
           validate="false">
      <forward name="success"                  path="tiledef.customerInfo" />
      <forward name="validate"                  path="/customersValidate.do"/>
    </action>

I can do this and get the Action to behave propertly.   The significant thing here is the "dispatch=save".  Problem is how do I make the struts action to the same?

<a href="customers.do?dispatch=save">Save Link </a>

>>>>    <a href="customers.do?dispatch=save">Save Link </a>

does the above link work? what error are you getting ?
