what is the role of reset() methord in struts.
like we have one field in form :

1) firstName

So when we click the reset methord , then what it will do ,

will it clear the text field or will it make firstName = null, that means make the variable null.

The reset() method is called by the Struts framework with each request that uses the defined ActionForm. The purpose of this method is to reset all of the LoginForm�s data members prior to the new request values being
set. You should implement this method to reset your form�s data members to their original values; otherwise,the default implementation will do nothing.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
