Filter Problem

Hi All,

Good Day!!!

I implemented my custom filter so that when Session Times Out in the Server, user should be directed to another action class mapping that will
do some processing first before they are forwarded to another JSP.

But its causing an error at the browser.
javax.servlet.ServletException: No action config found for the specified url.

Here's my filter code. Upon checking that the session has already expired
I should be able to call the action mapping for /logoutAction.do.

I will be glad to hear pointers too if what I am doing is correct or should I just extend the RequestProcessor Class ?(As from what I have read in the Search FAQ's, though I dont know much about this). Thanks.

Hi Merill,

I tried what you have suggested but its giving me a 404 error. So I tried
changing this one from



response.sendRedirect(request.getContextPath() + "/logoutAction.do");

and that did the trick. Thanks.

I am just wondering why forwarding to the request dispatcher did'nt work, whereas what we did was redirect using the response object and a new set of request and response object was generated and another trip to the browser..

But any way my problem was solved. Thanks again..
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
