How to Put JSP under WEB-INF

I am placing JSPs under WEB-INF and is using modules in Struts. The advice I got is to use this forward value:

<forward name=... path="/myview.jsp" />

i.e. without bothering the "/WEB-INF/module" prefix. At the same time, we should just let struts automatically insert this prefix by setting:

<controller forwardPattern="/WEB-INF$M$P"/>

However, once I made this change, how could I forward from 1 action to another action? e.g.

<acton ..
<forward name=... path="/"
<action path="/actionB"..>

The above is problematic because the forward path would be replaced by /WEB-INF/module/ according to the forwardPattern I set previously.
I agree. Here's the link:
