I have the following action mapped in my struts config
First off, with validate set to "false", why does this still get submitted to validation? When I try to set it to "true", it kills the app server altogether. Anyhow, my goal is to get validation and when I get an error, I want to forward to another action that is slightly different then my original action. Right now when the validation occurs, the 'input' parameter is ignored and the 'path' is the action that gets called. Any suggestions?
Just a guess Your input="/do/secure/searchNoPrepopulate" might be resulting in infinite loop resulting in app server crash. Another weird thing is that the forward starts with @ rather than /. Srikanth Author: Struts Survival Guide
The action TYPE attribute should be the fully qualified class name of your ACTION, not your formbean. Don't forget to map your formbean in a form-bean tag - that is where the TYPE attribute is the fully qualified class name of the formbean.
