Normally you'd store some sort of user object in the session so it's available throughout the entire application.

First of all in struts 2 there is no seprate actionforms and action both are included in Action.

Anyway in jsp you have to declare the element attributes with "s:" tag

<s:textfield name="fromDate" id="fromDate" theme="simple"/>

so in Action class you needed getters and setters for "fromDate". So automatically the action class takes the parameters from JSP.
Now to transfer to next page there are 2 ways
1) From there you can assign to some attributes and you can keep them in request or session.
2) Create a seprate action forms and assign this variables to new action form in Actionclass

Thanks David ,kartik
Actually i set that user-name in session and i get it in the next page.
Is there any other way to do that in struts 1?
if i set that bean as request/session in action scope attribute in struts-config will work?
I agree. Here's the link:
