forward from one action to another?

I am trying to forward from one action to another, but the forward goes to the correct JSP byt bypasses the action, which sets relevant info for the page, so causing an error.

struts config


I've also tried using the '.do' I've seen here in other posts but had no success

Any help would be greatly appreciated

I am using something like:
<action path="/erd/response" type="com.mmmmm.AnswerHandler" name="response" scope="request">
<forward name="success" path="/erd/" redirect="true"/>

<action path="/erd/evaluate" type="com.mmmmm.EvaluateAnswerHandler" name="evaluation" scope="request">
<forward name="success" path="/erd/"/>

where the second action is forwarding to the first, I use the complete action path on the forward path.
I agree. Here's the link:

It's not a secret anymore!
