I need to call an action defined in struts.xml within another package (one that is different from the package under which the currently executed action is in). I am now inside the jsp page directed to from action1 inside package1. From this jsp page I set the action url to "action2" but this action 2 is in package 2. When I submit the form I get a message which says /package1/action2 not defined.
I haven't done what your trying to do before but I think your problem is that when are calling action2 you are specifying the name space for package1. I think if you direct you url to the namespace specified for package2 this will work.
Displaying the relevand parts of your jsp and struts.xml file as well as the error message might help.
