Im new to struts.

- Whats the use of parameter inside <action> tag in struts-config file?
- I noticed for eg. 'parameter="spell{1}.page">' inside <action> tag. What does 'spell{1}.page'mean?

Thanks in advance

The most common use for the parameter attribute is an Action class that extends DispatchAction to determine which method to call.

See this link for information about Action Mapping wildcards.
