Can we apply struts tag libraries like struts-html.tld to a servlet file?

It means that form can be constructed with struts tag libraries and it submit the request to ordinary servlet file by putting servlet name in form tag instead of action class.

You could use the <bean:xxx> and <logic:xxx> tags, but you couldn't use the <html:xxx> tags. An <html:form> tag must declare a Struts Action in the action attribute, and all other <html:xxx> tags must be embedded in a valid <html:form> stanza.

If you tell us what it is you're trying to accomplish, we may be able to help you find a work-around.

You can specify a servlet as action in a regular <form> tag, but you can't do so in an <html:form> tag. Struts will throw an exception. If you don't believe me, try it.

If you have a Servlet that you need to call in a Strut application, the solution that comes to my mind is to take the logic you need from the Servlet and put it into an Action class. An Action class can do anything a servlet can do.
