On your way in you may have missed that we have a JavaRanch Naming Policy for displayed (screen) names. Your displayed name must consist of a first name (or an initial), a space, and a family name (in that order) and not be obviously fictitious. Since yours, "Van", does not conform with it, please take a moment to change it, which you can do right here.
Posters with nonconforming displayed names will be locked out of JavaRanch after a few posts using those names.
Here are some free multimedia tutorials on creating your first struts action, doing a Struts forward, Struts form validation, and i18n with Struts. It's a good start, at the very least to give you an idea of how struts works, even if you're not using WSAD or IRAD.
