What's missing is any link from the form element names on the JSP to action properties: if you're not implementing ModelDriven and providing the TestBean as the model, "name" and "roll" (I think you mean "role", by the way, unless it's specifically a bakery ordering system) there's no properties available on the stack named "name" and "roll".

Hi David,
Thanks a lot for the reply ... it was a silly mistake on my part there were two getters and setters with the same name in diferrent beans. e.g.


as soon as i renamed the getters and setters appropriately it started working fine.

One thing though i am confused as to why this happens .. its in a diferrent after all .. is struts not able to figure out which getter or setter to call ?

Unless there's a direct path to the method, how could it?

Not sure what you mean by - a direct path to method

How would Struts know which test() method to call unless it's explicitly stated somehow?
