Is it possible to use <html-form -tag to send the form to some outside URL?

For example:

At the moment the only workaround I have figured out is to use normal <form>-tags like this:

Anyway I would prefer to use struts-tags + formbean for this. Any ideas?

No, there isn't a way to use an <html:form> tag to refer to an outside URI. Think about it: If the action attribute doesn't refer to an action path, how is Struts going to associate a form bean with it? Even if it could, a form bean can't be passed to an outside link anyway.

The only solution I'm aware of is to do what you're already doing: Use the standard HTML tags.
