I would like to remove action extension so I could use "/login" instead of "/login.action". I tried to use:

struts.action.extension=action,,

but this doesn't work.

You can use URLRewriteFilter http://raibledesigns.com/rd/entry/extensionless_urls_in_java_web to produce extensionless URL.

If you are using Struts 2.0, you can add SmartURLs plugin http://cwiki.apache.org/S2PLUGINS/smarturls-plugin.html to remove the URL extension. Currently SmartURLs does not work for Struts 2.1.

Actually I'm using Struts 2.1.2, so second solution doesn't work for me. Considering the first one, I'm not quite sure what I need to do to rewrite url. I'm using Spring framework and this probably helps, but I don't see how to setup filter mentioned in this article.

It doesnt matter whether using Spring or not, it's a servlet filter.
