Determine if an action is in use?

I'm working on removing a Database column and looking to see how this one page is being used, however I cannot determine how it would get displayed. I'm currently searching the code for the "path/actionName" and only find the reference in the jsp and struts-config.xml - is there other ways that an actionPath get called in an app?

It could also get called from and html or js file (at least these are other ways I've used). However, your struts-config file may also be giving control to that JSP at some point, and then the action may be getting called by submitting the jsp.
I agree. Here's the link:
