Hello everyone...

I am creating my application using Struts2 framework...

I have created Interceptor named InterceptorEx ....


package example;

import com.opensymphony.xwork2.ActionInvocation;
import com.opensymphony.xwork2.interceptor.Interceptor;

public class InterceptorEx implements Interceptor

private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;

public String intercept(ActionInvocation in) throws Exception

String className = in.getAction().getClass().getName();
long startTime = System.currentTimeMillis();

System.out.println("Before calling action: " + className);

String result = in.invoke();

long endTime = System.currentTimeMillis();
System.out.println("After calling action: " + className + " Time taken: " + (endTime - startTime) + " ms");

return result;

public void destroy()
System.out.println("Destroying Interceptor...");
public void init()
System.out.println("Initializing Interceptor...");


"-//Apache Software Foundation//DTD Struts Configuration 2.0//EN"


<interceptor name="interceptorTest" class="example.InterceptorEx">

<package name="default" extends="struts-default">
<action name="HelloWorld" class="example.HelloWorld">
<interceptor-ref name="interceptorTest"></interceptor-ref>
<action name="welcome" class="example.Welcome">
<result name="REDIRECT" type="redirectAction">Register.action</result>
<result name="input">/example/welcome.jsp</result>
