Struts Action

Hi,

I have a Struts Action. From which i want to use like

out.println(HTML PAGE);

Basically, from Struts Action, the output should be generated without going to Struts-Config.

In a regular servlet, it can be achieved using out.println statements. Please help.

You need to write directly to the response.

I'm not sure why you'd want to do that, though, and I'm not sure what you mean by "without going to Struts-Config".

You can get the response write or output stream using the or . Then you can very simply use the response object to write whatever data you want to.

As for your problem of
without going to Struts-Config
what I think you mean is not get forwarded to a particular JSP or Action (for ex. if you want to stream back an excel/pdf file) . What you need to do is return a object. This way it will not "Go to the Struts-Config"

Or just return null.

Thats right David. Even a null will do. Thanks for pointing it out.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
