Hi,
I want to fwd. the client to another internetsite with URL rewritten i.e.
When I clikc on a hyperlink i need to find out his username and password from session and append to url like following:
http://abc.xyz.com?username=username&password=passwd
and redirect to above link.

Now if I programatically append the action forward the problem is that action forwards take only context relative paths.

Any solution to this...
please help.

Hi,

In Struts action class, wrap the URL in an ActionForward and set redirect-flag to "true" as shown below:

ActionForward externalurl = new ActionForward("http://abc.xyz.com?username=username&password=passwd",true);

return externalurl;

Never include a password in a link. Think of a better alternative.
