JSP and ActionServlet

I'm trying to figure out the handoffs in a Struts 1.2 environment.

When a JSP form is submitted by a user and the ActionServlet is eventually invoked, receiving a HttpServletRequest and a HttpServletResponse, is the Request object being passed to the ActionServlet the embodiment of the JSP?

Thanks.

Matt

public void doGet(HttpServletRequest request,
HttpServletResponse response)
throws IOException, ServletException {

process(request, response);

}

No (whatever "embodiment" means). It's simply the request generated from the form. The fact that the form is in an HTML page that was generated from a JSP is completely moot.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
