Hi All

I have a scenario where in there is a struts Action (ActionB) which is a sub class of (ActionA).
ActionA is not under our control & we cannot change any code there.

The flow is something like this ActionB's execute method indirectly calls ActionA's execute & in case of error scenarios the ActionError object get constructed & populated in ActionA's execute method.

I want to retreive this ActionError object in ActionB. But I am not able to fetch the same in ActionB.
But say if call ActionA individually I can get the ActionError object in its corresponding JSP.

How can i fetch the ActionError object in such a scenario

If ActionA's execute method calls the saveErrors() method, the ActionErrors object will be in request scope. So, if you need to access it in ActionB, you can get it from the request. Here's an example:

If you're using version 1.1:

If you're using version 1.2:
