ActionError history is not clearing automatically

Hi

I have a small struts application in the login form I have the validate() to validate the userId and pwd whether is null or not and displaying the action error messages.

struts-config.xml
-------------------
<action path="/Login" parameter="/Login/login.jsp" type="org.apache.struts.actions.ForwardAction" />

In JSP
-------
<div style="color:red">
<html:errors />
</div>

Everytime while accessing the /Login.do am getting the validation errors also like(user is required and password is required). After refreshing the page is disappears.

I tried adding
<%
response.setHeader("Cache-Control","no-cache");
response.setHeader("Pragma","no-cache");
response.setDateHeader ("Expires", -1);
%>
but no use.. Everytime at first login I got the validation errors. Please assist me to resolve this.

Dear Meet,
I think that is not because of chached errors...
that may be because , you are directly going to the Login Action without going thru JSP and as you have validatation hrnce it is fired and you are having Action Errors on the page...


Thanks

ok...
i think ,you can break your action in to 2 action
1st for, just to redirect to Login.jsp,when user just click on Login Link.
2nd for, to validate and forward on action,when user enter userid/pass and hits submit button.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
