Hi, I am a newbie with struts. I have not understood the concept of Model. What does it represent? Does it represent some data or business logic?? Is the Action Form a model? I know Action represent the business logic of the request.

Model is a simple java class where your business logic goes. google for "MVC architecture"

As far as Struts 1.x is considered, its built upon MVC 2 and the originator can explain you better what it means.

You may be a Model.. we do not know.

But in programming terms, model is where business logic resides... the term Model is part of MVC - Model View Controller.
