I am using struts 1.1. My ActionForm (formbean) is defined in struts-config in session scope (in the action tag, name="myform" set to session scope). Among other fields on the form, my formbean has a field/ property with getter and setter for a String called usrAction.
Now, in my JSP file, I want to retrieve the value of this usrAction property from the formbean and pass it as a parameter to a static method of an Util class. So, that i may then use this to print to the user.
Some thing like the below:
1. String action = retrieve the value of usrAction from the formbean. 2. String fName = SomeUtil.getFName(action). 3. <%= fName %>
How can i perform the step 1 above purely in struts.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Hi - I am wondering why there has been no response to this post.
I know that with pure JSP, i can achieve the 3 steps outlined in my last post. Since i did not find any struts mechanism to achieve step 1, i thought of putting this up the post in case i have missed it in my study.
Please let me know if it is possible at all to achieve step 1 in struts. i.e assign a value of a form bean field to a variable so that i can then invoke my utility method passing this variable as a parameter.
