struts-config.mxl problem!

Hi,
I have just started using struts and have come across a problem with my struts-config file. The probelm is when i have an '&' symbol in my forward path i get an javax.servlet.jsp.Jspexception:can't get the definitions factory from context. e.g.
<action path="/loadRoles"
type="com.x.y.z.ProfileAction"
name="ProfileForm"
scope="request"
validate="false">
<forward name="success"
Path="/profile.jsp?user=hr&form=loadRoles"/>
</action>
Without the '&' symbol every thing works fine but i this doesn't help as i need to pass across some parameters. Does anyone have any ideas?
Help would be much appreciated!

Did you mean "&amp;"?. The struts-config.xml file isn't the only resource where you have to escape the "infamous 5" (& < > " ' ) !
