I am not sure why ActionMessages are used when we can use ActionErrors. Can someone please help.
Thanks and regards,

ActionErrors are used to display a single kind of message, an error message.
ActionMessages allow you to have other types of messages such as confirmation messages, completion messages, etc. in addition to the error messages.

If you are using
1.2, ActionErrors is deprcated and you should always use ActionMessages. If you are using Struts 1.1, use ActionMessages for informational messages and ActionErrors for error messages.

I'm working with a Struts 1.1 app...but it may be upgraded to 1.3 in the near future. In this case would it be wise to just use the ActionMessages all the time for future compatibility?
