You can either pass them as parameters or stuff them in the session.

      <result type="redirectAction">
        <param name="actionName">MyAction</param>
        <param name="p1">${p1}</param>
        <param name="p2">${p2}</param>
        <param name="p3">${p3}</param>
Just need to setup getters for the parameters (getP1(), getP2(), etc.) in
your action.
You do have a limit on how much you can pass and all the parameters must be
Strings (or convertable to String).

You can use this [1] *RedirectMessageInterceptor *

You probably mean redirectAction
