I am new to struts and I just can't figure out why I'm getting this error message: org.apache.jasper.JasperException: Cannot find global ActionForward for name welcome Here is my struts-config.xml: <struts-config> <form-beans/> <global-forwards> <forward name="welcome" path="/test.jsp" redirect="true" /> </global-forwards>
<action-mappings> <action path="/home" type="ematrix.framework.EmatrixBaseAction" scope="request" validate="false" input="welcome.jsp"> <forward name="Success" path="/test.jsp"/> </action> </action-mappings> <controller processorClass="org.apache.struts.action.RequestProcessor" contentType="text/html;charset=UTF-8"/> <message-resources parameter="EmatrixMessageResources"/> </struts-config> Here is my welcome.jsp: <%@ taglib uri="http://jakarta.apache.org/struts/tags-logic" prefix="logic" %>
If my memory servers me correctly.... the logic:forward does a request distpacther forward. Just for kicks try removing the redirect attribute from your welcome forward in you struts config file. It could also be that the JSP page you specify in the forward is spelled wrong. Try forwarding directly to the jsp with <jsp:forward instead. BTW logic:forward breaks the model 2/MVC framework as it allows the view to select the next view. Only the controller should select the next view.
