Wildcards in ActionMappings

Hi all,
I want to use Wildcards in ActionMappings. i.e. i defined the action mapping as -


The struts user guide says that all requests URIs starting with the word 'edit' would be mapped to this action. For e.g. /editSubscription, /editRegistration would be mapped.
When i define the action of an jsp page as /editSubscription and submit the page, i get an error -

javax.servlet.jsp.JspException: Cannot retrieve mapping for action /editSubscription

So it seems it does not understand the wildcard mapping...
can anybody help me in defining wild card mapping?
thanks in advance.

what version of struts do you use ?
the wildcard mapping is NOT included in 1.2 and less.
so, get a nightly build.
