Subject RE: Servlet mapping in a Struts app?
Date Fri, 17 Mar 2006 22:24:45 GMT
That probably explains it then. :)  I'm still a little confused, though, as I
thought that the mappings were directives for the container (Tomcat in this
case), but obviously Struts also needs to get it from somewhere to build the
form action URL, so this must be where it's getting messed up.

I'm going to play around some more this weekend, but it may be that I end up
having to call my API function ".do's" to get it to work. 

Thanks for the reply.

Struts doesn't support multiple servlet mappings, which is probably why you are
seeing some strange results.
