Problem forwarding to another page using struts.

I am trying to use modules to simulate a struts application on a larger scale. I have been having this problem with my forward action tag so I started using

<html:link action="/viewSearch">Search for Employee</html:link>

which was working fine. Now I start using L

<html:link forward="/viewSearch">Search for Employee </html:link>

and the browser is complaining of a MalformedURLException.

Here is how my directory is set up:

MiniHR/index.jsp

MiniHR/employee/search.jsp

MiniHR/reports/menu.jsp

MiniHR/WEB-INF/struts-config.xml
MiniHR/WEB-INF/struts-config-employee.xml
MiniHR/WEB-INF/struts-config-reports.xml
MiniHR/WEB-INF/web.xml

______________________

There is nothing wrong with my stuts files because I can access menu.jsp just fine.

I am having two issues

1) html:link forward="/viewSearch">Search for Employee </html:link>

This gives me this error:
javax.servlet.jsp.JspException: Cannot create rewrite URL: java.net.MalformedURLException: Cannot retrieve ActionForward named /viewSearch

Like I said previously I have used this tag before i even started working with modules and it has never worked so i started using

<html:link action="/viewSearch">Search for Employee</html:link> which works fine. I just want to know why the forward attribute from the html:link tag doesn't work.

My second prob is that since I am using the action attribute of the html:link tag I now get something that says :


javax.servlet.ServletException: No action config found for the specified url.

From my index.jsp page I use the html link page to hit my struts config which is:


struts-config.xml
<global-forwards>
<forward name="viewSearch" path="/employee/viewSearch.do"/>
</global-forwards>

This should map to my struts-config-employee.xml:

<action-mappings>
<action path="/viewSearch" forward="/search.jsp"/>
<action path="/search"
type="com.jamesholmes.minihr.SearchAction"
name="searchForm"
scope="request"
validate="true"
input="/search.jsp">
</action>
</action-mappings>


There is some problem in this step so I am given:

org.apache.struts.chain.commands.InvalidPathException: No action config found for the specified url.

If I mapped directly to the module that works but trying to mapped to one config file to the next is causing problems can anyone help with my two probs?
