I am new to struts and i have make a web page using struts.
I filled the form for the first time and click on RESET button then all fields get cleared.
When i submit the form but it contains errors, then obviously it will come on the same page, but now when i click RESET , then it is not clearing the fields.

Please tell me that what to do.

I can't say that I have ever used the reset button outside of test applications. My understanding is that it resets all the values back to what they were when the page was displayed. Since you submitted the page and it was displayed back with values, then those are the values that the page will get "reset" to. It sounds like you want to clear all the fields.

If I were to implement this I would probably...use a submit button to handle the reset...set a hidden value when the user clicked that the "save" action I would check the hidden value...if it is set then I would forward back to the "display" action with redirect set to true.
