I am using onClick to submit to action class in submit button .
My JSP is populating data from one form and the action to which i am submitting is using another form.How to distinguish which form to submit.

Hi vijaya vedula

By default the submit will submit the form in which it has been declared. but if you want to choose then you can call a javascript function on submit and define the action to which you want to submit.

i hope this helps, if i have not understood your problem correctly then let me know.


to err is human, but the company policy doesn't allow it!

If you want the Action to use different form then configure the action and form in your struts-config.xml action mapping.
