First thing you got to update is your display name. Ranch is a very friendly forum which has very less strict policies and one among them is the display name. Please have a look at this page. You can update your name by editing your profile
Can any one tell me the difference between normal servlet and action servlet in struts and a java bean and struts action form.
Well. ActionServlet is also a Servlet but with some speciality included. Hope you know about what a Servlet actually is.
This ActionServlet is Struts specific and it is the one which
reads the struts-config.xml file and
decides which action class to invoke based on the input request
regulates the flow from the JSP to Action class and vice versa.
A Java Bean is a component that has got some properties and a pair of mutator/accessor methods. [also called as Setter/Getters]. An Action Form is also a kinda JavaBean but it has got some other reset() methods etc., using which you can reset the properties of all properties.
