Hi all,

I am relatively new to struts . Can any body please tell me why do we have to override the execute method in the ActionClass in struts. What is the idea behind doing it?


Regards,
Deepak

If you don't override execute method, then where do you supposed to implement your application/business code ?

Dude,

I think its better if you understand the MVC architecture first, and then think on this..

Good Luck

The architecture itself doesn't have much to do with it though; no matter what the architecture is, the "why" of overriding would still be true.

That said--I'd try to avoid learning Struts 1 unless you have a good reason, unless it's for historical purposes.

Yeah I am Agreed!
If some has an idea about MVC then he might think on it an understand the usage of it.
