 So now I can direct my user to view their post reply in the topic page.
+I have encountered a similar problem. The above solution works with some limitations
+1. It somewhat breaks the mapping abstraction, and creates additional burden to encode the
+2. It does not seem to work if the action to forward to (in the above case, viewTopic) expects
the a parameter that is also specified in the original request. 
+The other solutions I tried include:
+1. Use a redirect ActionForward (it solves issue 2).
+2. Overwrite the request attribute - ActionForm mapping logic so that the logic first looks
at request context attribute before looking at request parameter. With this approach, one
can then set additional attributes using request.setAtrribute(...); 
+However, it seems that solution 2 is not a typical soltuion. Any feedback?
