hi guys
iam having some doubts in org.apache.struts.action.PlugIn

we are having a class that implements this Plugin interface

that has 3 methods apart from init() and destory()(totally 5 methods)

i was not able to figure out when and where these methods are

called i thought that these 3 methods will be callback methods

looking for your replies

regards
amir

The only methods that Struts will call on your plugin are init() and destroy(). If you have other methods, the only way they will get called is if you locate the object and call them yourself. For example, you could make the object a singleton and provide it with a static getInstance() method that returns an instance of the class. Once you have a reference to the object, you can call whatever methods you want.
