Subject Re: simple forward/redirect

You could define a 'general' ForwardAction that simply makes the forward
in its perform.
Something like this.

public ActionForward perform(ActionMapping mapping, ActionForm form,
HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) 
throws ServletMaravediNetException {

	return (mapping.findForward("success"));


This class could be com.yourcompany.yourpackage.ForwardAction and you
could use it everytime that you want to do a simply forward or redirect.

     <!-- Process a user logon -->
     <action    path="/logon"
         <forward name="success" path="/logon.jsp" />

     <action    path="/anotheraction"
         <forward name="success" path="/other.jsp" redirect="true"/>
