Question with respect to Struts2

Hello i am completely new to Struts2 .Please help

This is inside struts.xml file

<action name="Address_save" class="app.Address" method="save">

1. Why should one want to write a different method inside the Action class rather than execute method ?


2. Can i define both execute method and used defined method in a single Action class??


If you want something you never had do something which you had never done

Because you might want to have multiple methods in your action class so functionality can be aggregated. Yes, you can have an arbitrary number of methods in your action classes with arbitrary names: the default "method" attribute value is "execute".

I saw this point after posting the Question

An action class may be associated with multiple actions.

Thanks David
