Create FAQ from #35477 submitted by Rainer Podlas

New page:
= Why is the URI in my form tags truncated? =

In the JSP template, we've specified

* <html:form action="/"> 

and in the struts-config.xml, we've specified

* <action type="MyAction" path="/input" name="myform" parameter="301" scope="session"/>

If the page is accessed using a URI like 

* http://localhost:9080/myApp/home

when the page renders, the html source contains only the application name 

* <form action="/myApp">. 

As a result, the form is not submitted to the proper URI or ActionMapping.

struts version - 1.1
environment- wsad 5.0 

Here are two things you can try, 

* First, specify the ActionMapping in the html:form tag, not the URI form with the extension.
Using the URI extension with the form tag has been deprecated since Struts 0.5.

* Second, check whether there is a leading slahs specified by the servlet mapping in the web.xml
deployment descriptor. Usually you will want to specify 

** <url-pattern>*.do</url-pattern>

without a leading slash.
