I am beginner. I have tried to create a two webpage struts app.

login.jsp ---->success----> main.jsp
----> failure---> login.jsp

Forcefully added some errors to simulate to display errors on login.jsp.

login.jsp is shown back without any errors...

Action Class's execute method:

public ActionForward execute(ActionMapping mapping, ActionForm form, HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) throws Exception {
System.out.println("In execute() of LoginAction1");
ActionErrors errors = new ActionErrors();
System.out.println("In execute() of LoginAction2");
ActionForward forward = new ActionForward();
System.out.println(" In execute() of LoginAction3");
LoginForm loginForm = (LoginForm) form;

ActionMessages messages = new ActionMessages();
ActionMessage msg;
msg = new ActionMessage("error.userid.required");//, "Hellolll");
messages.add("msg1", msg);
saveMessages(request, messages);
//request.setAttribute("loginForm", loginForm);

try {

// do something here

} catch (Exception e) {

// Report the error using the appropriate name and ID.
errors.add("name", new ActionError("id"));


// Forcing it to have some errors....
errors.add(ActionErrors.GLOBAL_ERROR,new ActionError(ActionErrors.GLOBAL_ERROR, "Helloooo" ));
errors.add("password", new ActionError("error.password.required"));
// errors.add("password", new ActionError("error.password.required"));
// If a message is required, save the specified key(s)
// into the request for use by the <struts:errors> tag.

if (!errors.empty()) {
System.out.println("Errors exist. Forward to failure page.");
saveErrors(request, errors);
forward = mapping.findForward("failure");
// Write logic determining how the user should be forwarded.
else forward = mapping.findForward("success");
//forward = mapping.findForward("failure");

// Finish with
return (forward);



<action name="loginForm" path="/login" scope="session" type="com.scoo.webstruts.actions.LoginAction" input="./Login.jsp" validate="true" >
<forward name="success" path="./Main.jsp">
<forward name="failure" path="./Login.jsp">

<!-- Message Resources -->
<message-resources parameter="com.scoo.webstruts.resources.ApplicationResources"/>


Ho do I verify that app is able to take the strings from Resource files?

I am trying to test under WSAD Testing env and tried to do it on Tomcat too.

Thanks for any help.

Did you add a tag to your jsp for displaying the errors?
It was the best of times. It was the worst of times. It was a tiny ad.
