When you click submit, control does not go to web.xml, it goes to the resource specified in the attribute action in form tag.

This means, the controller has to go to url /searchTutorial, any URL are resolved by web.xml.. so controller examines the web.xml and forwards to the appropriate servlet, mapped to url /searchTutorial..

Not really; since this is apparently a Struts 1 application, the html:form tag will transform the action name into its full Struts 1 name, "/searchTutorial.action".

That is mapped in the web.xml to the Struts 1 action servlet, which normally handles all "/*.action" requests.

The action servlet maps the action name to the implementing code via the request processor.

(Exact details depend on which version of Struts you're using.)

Please be sure to ask Struts questions in the Struts forum. I have moved this post there for you.
