I have a struts based application. There are some actions defined in my strus-config.xml - these are visible to the user. How do I prevent the user from bookmarking the url. When the user tries to access these links directly I want to display a different page which tells hi that it is not possible. Is there any way I can do this.

Cindy,
You can set a value in the session on the page the user comes from. Struts calls this a token. On the pages that you don't want bookmarked, check for that value.

I think A filter here makes sense.
