Thanks very much for the reply.  I have tried this and it works great.  I appreciate the assistance.

Is it possible to do the same thing, but on a menu selection?

The menu says:
<a href="/betaSystem/jsp/userDisplay.jsp">My Acccount</a>

Can I direct this to an action class, rather than to a jsp file?

I think you want to investigate an 'actionredirect' on 'success'
instead of just displaying the user jsp file. This will 'handoff'
control to your user action.
