Login then Retrieval

What is the best way to implement this sample flow?

1. There are only 2 pages, login.jsp and profile.jsp
2. Each of the views (login.jsp and profile.jsp) have its corresponding Action Form and Action Class.
login.jsp >> and
profile.jsp >> and
3. On login, the execute() of LoginAction will be invoked. This method checks if the user and password is valid or not.
4. If valid, the profile.jsp will be loaded. However, the page should contain the data of the user.

The retrieval of user data is contained in execute method of ProfileAction.

How can I retrieve the data after the login process but before loading the profile.jsp?

Also, is it possible to attach an instance of ProfileFormBean aside from LoginFormBean to the ActionMapping of LoginAction?

Yes, you can retrive data before open profile.jsp .

Solution :: you can change config of login's action in struts-config.xml.
