ForwardAction provides a simple approach if you just want a link being forwarded to a jsp page without actually writing an Action class. But how can you saveToken on that jsp since you don't have coding anymore?
Does struts action-mapping tag provides this feature? I don't see it.

I'm afraid ForwardAction doesn't do anything with tokens. You'll have to write an Action class if you want to use the saveToken method.

You could easily write one action class that called saveToken and then returned "findForward("success")" (or whatever you wanted to do). You could then have multiple action mappings that used this same implementation.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
