Just thinking.. did you declare action forms in your struts-config???


If it's easy.. then everybody would do it!

this is my struts-config.xml.


<struts-config>
<form-beans>
<form-bean name="registerActionForm" type="org.apache.struts.validator.DynaValidatorActionForm">
<form-property name="userid" type="java.lang.String"/>
<form-property name="password" type="java.lang.String"/>
<form-property name="email" type="java.lang.String"/>
<form-property name="address" type="java.lang.String"/>
<form-property name="phno" type="java.lang.String"/>
</form-bean>

</form-beans>

<global-forwards>
<forward name="register" path="/onClickRegister"/>

</global-forwards>

<action-mappings>
<action path="/onClickRegister" forward="Register.page"/>
<action path="/onClickURL" forward="Register.page"/>
<action path="/submitRegisterForm" type="com.example.registerAction" name="registerActionForm" scope="session" validate="true" input="Register.page">
<forward name="failure" path="Register.page"/>
<forward name="success" path="Success.page"/>
</action>

</action-mappings>

<controller processorClass="org.apache.struts.tiles.TilesRequestProcessor"/>

<message-resources parameter="com/myapp/struts/ApplicationResource"/>

<!-- ========================= Tiles plugin ===============================-->
<!--
This plugin initialize Tiles definition factory. This later can takes some
parameters explained here after. The plugin first read parameters from
web.xml, thenoverload them with parameters defined here. All parameters
are optional.
The plugin should be declared in each struts-config file.
- definitions-config: (optional)
Specify configuration file names. There can be several comma
separated file names (default: ?? )
- moduleAware: (optional - struts1.1)
Specify if the Tiles definition factory is module aware. If true
(default), there will be one factory for each Struts module.
If false, there will be one common factory for all module. In this
later case, it is still needed to declare one plugin per module.
The factory will be initialized with parameters found in the first
initialized plugin (generally the one associated with the default
module).
true : One factory per module. (default)
false : one single shared factory for all modules
- definitions-parser-validate: (optional)
Specify if xml parser should validate the Tiles configuration file.
true : validate. DTD should be specified in file header (default)
false : no validation

Paths found in Tiles definitions are relative to the main context.

It's handy to post code inside code tags so it's more legible, and remove unneeded things like 30-line comment blocks and so on.

Here's the code, tidied and put inside code tags--much easier to read. Also, it's best to disable HTML in posts containing... HTML.

Some initial thoughts:

- The login action should not have the ".do" in the action mapping.
- Have you confirmed the link is rendering properly?
- Does the JSP page with the link contain the HTML taglib directive?
