Hi
I have the following code in a jsp page :
<form action="register.do" method="post" >
will this work with struts and an ActionForm or do i need to use the struts html:form tag?
Thanks

...but you'll have to manually re-populate the fields on your form. Users get really frustrated when they have to fill out a whole form multiple times because of minor typos.
Especially when the user is a web developer who knows how easy it would be to re-fill those fields.

Thank you
Especially for pointing out the advantage of using the struts form tag over the normal form tag
