How to read the details of already parsed struts-config

Hi,

The ActionServlet whilie initializing, parses the configuration files i.e struts-config.xml and stores the corresponding parsed data. If in my application I want to access those objects created by the Digester parser, how can I do that? For example, I want to read all the attributes of an Action tag: path, input, name, scope, etc.

Thanks,
Indresh

Hi James,

Thanks for the reply.
I was able to figure out that the ActionConfig class stores all the attributes for any Action. Now in my application, if I need to access the ActionConfig object, how can I do that? Is there any method in the ActionServlet class which I can use?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
