Struts forward question

In Struts, I can forward from an Action to a JSP. But how do I get an Action to forward control to another Action? I am trying to chain several actions together before finally invoking a JSP.
My code looks like this:


Am I doing this right? When I invoke action1 from invoker.jsp, I get an Error 500 which says, "Cannot get request dispatcher for path null". The Tomcat log file says, "2002-10-18 16:51:34 StandardContext[/portal]: Mapped to servlet 'action' with servlet path '/' and path info 'null' and update=true"
What does path info 'null' mean?
Thanks for your help.

Hi Geoff,
presumably your looks like this:

What version of struts have you got?
Also you don't need to specify the input attribute for the mapping unless attribute validation=true
You have specified the form-beans in struts-config as well?

I have seen things you people would not believe, attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion, c-beams sparkling in the dark near the Tennhauser Gate. All these moments will be lost in time, like tears in the rain.
I agree. Here's the link:
