ajax request processing issue

I am using struts 2.2.3 version and pretty new to Struts. I have 2 issues with respect to handling ajax request.

Issue 1:
I defined a method in Action class and mapped that method to struts.xml mapping and gave that action class name in ajax request URL as given below.

requestObject = xmlHttpRequestHandler.createXmlHttpRequest();
var url = "serviceContent";"Get",url,true);
Action mapping:
<action name="serviceContent" class="com.vzw.wsrr.action.ServiceCatalogAction" method="displayServiceContent">
<result name="success">services.jsp</result>

It did not process the request and got the response as "Not found". Looks like it is not able to map.

Hence I decided to implement execute() method in my action class and changed the code as given below
requestObject = xmlHttpRequestHandler.createXmlHttpRequest();
var url = "ServiceCatalog";"Get",url,true);
Action mapping:
<action name="ServiceCatalog" class="com.vzw.wsrr.action.ServiceCatalogAction">
<result name="success">services.jsp</result>

It works good. It is getting into execute() method.

Issue 2:
I wanted to pass some additional input to the execute method. I change ajax request url to as given below.
var url = "ServiceCatalog?userAction=serviceContent&serviceName="+serviceName;

Now it does not go to execute() method and simple does nothing. There is no error. I am getting the return status as success.

If I enter that URL(http://localhost:9080/StrutsProject/ServiceCatalog?userAction=serviceContent&serviceName=testService)
directly in the browser and the control goes to execute() method, since it is normal form submit.

I am not sure why it is not taking the additional input attributes in the request. I cant set those additional attributes as hidden controls, since am not submitting the form.

Any help appreciated!
