Hi All,
I use Weblogic 8 , struts 1.1 on win2000

I submit the form on itself. i.e educationalBackground.jsp submits and comes back to educationalBackground.jsp.

Now After successful submission when It comes back to same page , the form fields are populated with most recent values !!!

I can certainly call "formReset()" in javascript to set values to nulls...but is there any other way ?

You could have your Action either call the reset method on the form when it is done with it or the Action can remove the ActionForm from scope (it is stored as an attribute under the key of what name you gave the form-bean in struts-config.xml.
