This is a Struts related query. In my web app, I have a folder named XX which has two files, Show.html and Game.swf, with the Show.html having the code to show the swf (Game.swf) file. This folder XX is in no way related to the web app. In a page in the web app, I have to point a link "GAME" to Show.html. The folder XX exists outside WEB-INF and I coded as: <a href='/XX/Show.html'>GAME</a>. The code worked well.
But the problem is the URL appeared on the browser bar as http://localhost:8080/XX/Show.html. So, with the idea of securing the URL, I planned to use an action named ShowGame.do with the following mapping in the struts-config file: <action path="/ShowGame" parameter="/XX/Show.html" type="org.apache.struts.actions.ForwardAction" /> and changed the href code to: <jaf:link action='/ShowGame'>GAME</jaf:link> This is not working.
Can you please tell me why?
