I have a jsp which makes request to an Action class Action1.

Action1 get all request parameters, say form parameters , updates the database and then it should forward the control to another Action Action2 or an jsp.

The forward to jsp is working fine.

but for the forward to Action2 gives an error, resource with path /action2 is not available.

my mapping is
return mapping.findForward("action2");

my struts-config.xml is

< action path="/action1" type="Action1" name="myForm">
< forward name="myjsp1" path="/myjsp1" /> --> no problem here..

< forward name="action2" path="/action2" /> --> here i have problem..
< /action>

< action path="/action2" type="Action2" name="myForm" >
< forward name="something" path="something" />
< /action>

Change the following line

< forward name="action2" path="/action2" />


< forward name="action2" path="/" />

Remember, this is a URL so it has to have the ".do" suffix.

This link explains more about action chaining.
