You could forward directly to an action. ie. index.jsp does nothing but forward to /getStuff.do which then does it's thing and forwards to showStuff.jsp [ September 07, 2004: Message edited by: Clifford Adams ]
Try what is called a setup action. Instead of going to the jsp, go to the action that (upon completion) forwards to the jsp.

Thanks for the advice Marc.
I finally figured out what a setup Action is and how to create one. So far it is working good, except that the jsp is not loaded. I have done a System.out.println of the mapping.findForward - that is coming back fine, but the web browser doesn't appear to even attempt to load the jsp. The address stays at ../action.do - Any ideas?
