If it really bothers you can set redirect=true in your forward definition in struts-config.xml. This has two problems though, first you have extra communcation with the browser, where the browser gets a redirect and then has to request the the next page, secondly it will stop you storing an information you want to pass on the the forward in the request, instead if there is information you want to keep you will have to store it in the session.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
