Hi
I am pretty new to Struts. So please bear with me if my question is little childish. I have a JSP which is supposed to call an action but when i hit the submit button, i get an exception that reads "Cannot retrieve mapping for action". Could you please help me out in resolving this...


The JSP that calls the action looks like


The struts config for the action looks like


I also have a form bean that has its definition in struts-config


Thanks

Hi,
according to my knowledge you have to include the name of JSP to which form bean needs to be associated in input attribute of <action> tag in struts-config file
I hope this will work out.
Let me know how it helps.
Thanks

Hi Karthik,

If you are providing name attributr in <html:form> you should also specify the type attribute.
so try with this

<hr/ >
<html:form action="XXXX" >
<hr/ >

hi,

I think the value for action attribute of <html:form> should be "AddressValidate.do".

Correct me If I am wrong.

Hi
I checked with other JSP's in the application. They dont seem to have ".do" extension for the action.

Check ur web.xml for your action servlet , and servlet mapping given correctly ,,
<servlet>
<servlet-name>action</servlet-name>
<servlet-class>org.apache.struts.action.ActionServlet</servlet-class>
<init-param>
<param-name>config</param-name>
<param-value>WEB-INF/struts-config.xml</param-value>
</init-param>
<init-param>
<param-name>debug</param-name>
<param-value>2</param-value>
</init-param>
<init-param>
<param-name>detail</param-name>
<param-value>2</param-value>
</init-param>
<init-param>
<param-name>validate</param-name>
<param-value>true</param-value>
</init-param>
<load-on-startup>2</load-on-startup>
</servlet>
<servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>action</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>*.do</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>

Hi
I checked web.xml. It looks fine. Also all other JSP's are working fine. So, i am not sure if it is a problem with web.xml.

Thanks
Karthik

I think .do is not mandotary.
