Subject Re: Error vs Warning for an Action not found?
Date Fri, 13 Jan 2006 07:15:05 GMT
Hey Carlin,

The action attribute was intended to be stricter, since it *must* be an 
action in the current page flow.  But you're right, with Struts merge we 
can't know whether a valid action is being merged in.  I think relaxing 
to a warning is sufficient.
