Hi,

Is there any option to get the datasource connection from the non-action class?, where the datasource specified in the struts-config.xml file.

If the class shares the same InitialContext as the action class, then yes, no worries. You can just get the reference that way:

The <resource reference> corresponds to the context.xml entry (or server.xml entry)
<ResourceParams name="<resource reference">
