This is my first post at CodeRanch. Previously I had been using stackoverflow.com and it was very good, but some of the times I couldn't find the answers to very critical questions. The question I am asking here is one such question, unanswered there, now I am trying my luck here . Please give me a few minutes if you know about it.
So my question is:
Where to Struts controller redirects if a form validation fails? Does it redirect to the value in input attribute in the action element of struts-config file? How can we set the flag redirect="true" for the forward when validation fails? ( So that the url of page being redirected to, is shown in the browser instead of html:form action url. )
Or let me put this in this way:
How can we make sure that, if a form validation fails, we do not see the html:form action url in the browser, but the url of the page being redirected to?
