In my struts application, after consecutive actions say Home,Action1 and Action2, I am going back action 'Home'. The page displaying properly but the url in the address bar is not changing to 'home'.

Normally, a struts forward does not cause the URL to change. If you want the URL to change when the forward occurs, specify redirect="true" in the forward definition. Be aware, though, that when you do specify redirect="true", the JSP you forward to will not have access to any objects you've put in the request object.
