Subject Struts 2: After validation fail, how to change the returning result name to other than INPUT?
Date Sat, 17 May 2008 01:40:50 GMT

I have a CustomerAction class.  In CustomerAction, I have two methods:
add and update.  I have a CustomerAction-validation.xml to check for
required fields, etc.  My struts.xml looks something like this:

	<package name="customer">
		<action name="customer_*"
class="com.action.CustomerAction" method="{1}">

When the validation fail, I would like it to return to the previous page
(either cusomer_create.jsp or customer_update.jsp).  However, Struts
returns result = "input" automatically when the validation fail. How do
I change the result from "input" to either "add" or "update"?

A clunky way to solve this problem is to create two actions.  That would
generate too many classes.  Is there a good solution for this problem of
mine?  Thanks.
