Hi all

Can someone explain to me at a high level what is going on between Struts, the jsp, the action and the form. I have a decent idea, but I need some clarification. Basically I know that behind the scenes Struts appends the get and set of the form members and eveything is taken and put on the request, but I very shadding on the details and when it happens. Any thoughts?

This link contains a number of UML diagrams that show the relationship between Struts objects. Pay particular attention to the Sequence Diagram that shows the sequence of events that occur when the ActionServlet gets a request from a user.
