Form.submit() and WebSphere

Hi All,

I am running websphere version 5.6.x.x.

I have an application that I am trying to trouble shoot. There is a javascript form.submit() function in an html page. Something is going on with the java class file that is performing the processing for this form. The trouble that I am having now is that while I think I know which class is being invoked, I don't know which one it really is.

I have been searching the web for a few days trying to get an insight into how I would locate this program. I have been told that if I were using struts that there would be a config.xml file someplace that would link the html page with a java class.

Is the same thing true for a non-struts application?

Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

If your app is not using a front controller, the servlet or JSP will be named in the action attribute of the form. What's there?

If it's a servelt reference, it should be mapped in the deployment descriptor (web.xml).

As this is not an HTML or JavaScript question, I'm moving it off to the servelts forum ('cause I don't thinkthis is websphere=specific either).
