Hi all,

my mappings are like this:
[code]<action path="/order" type="OrderAction">
<forward name="orders" path="/orders/orders.jsp"/>
<forward name="detail" path="/orders/detail.jsp"/>
<forward name="form" path="/orders/placeorder.jsp"/>
<forward name="emptyform" path="/orders/placeorder.jsp?empty=true"/>
<forward name="place" path="/orders/confirm.jsp?response=ok"/>
<forward name="cancelled" path="/orders/cancelled.jsp"/>[code]
as you see the paths are hard coded...
is there a possibility to add somepthing in front of the path dynamicly? like user1 has /user1/<actionpath> and user2 has /user2/<actionpath> ???
i have absolutely no clue how to acchieve this... please advice...

Moving to the Struts forum. (They just CALL it the Frameworks forum ).
