can anyone post the difference between RequestProcessor and ActionServlet.struts 1.1 addresses ActionServlet as Controller struts 1.2.7 addresses RequestProcessor as controller

nothing is impossible in the world even the word impossible sounds as I'M'Possible.

The ActionServlet is the main controller object. It gets control as soon as a user requests "". The RequestProcessor is a helper class instantiated and used by ActionServlet to process each request that comes in. The RequestProcessor actually does most of the work involved when a request comes in and a response goes out.
