Subject RE: Struts 2 Annotations Maven - No Action mapped
Date Thu, 21 Mar 2013 16:20:25 GMT
After reviewing the "Convention Plugin documentation" I found "struts" and "action" are
keywords for the plugin to find packages.

As the classes were under "org.apache.struts.struts2annotations.action", the default
Namespace didn´t find the action classes. I simply changed "struts" to "foo" and the
Project started to work -->

You can also check it looking into the default namespace in the Config Browser Plugin, where
There should appear 3 actions: hello, register and register-input.

As I am using JBoss, I also included two constants in struts.xml which are considered in the

Finally, I would like to thank Łukasz for his quick comments.

Not it doesn't, action is action, result is result, don't mix them in @Action. See simple

public class RegisterAction extends ActionSupport {

   @Action("register") // basically not needed, just to show what I mean
   public String execute() {
       if (something)
            return "success";
           return "input";

and under WEB-INF/content/
- register-success.jsp (or just register.jsp)
- register-input.jsp

> I also attached a "message" property to the HelloAction but it didn´t appear in the
