Subject RE: s:action tag showing result
Date Fri, 21 Jun 2013 22:04:00 GMT
We are also experiencing issues with tags and theme files, we are upgrading many applications
from to
I am not sure if this is related - if not and if I need to start a new discussion please let
me know and accept my apology.


We previously always coded forms as : 
	<s:form action="login" namespace="/">....
Now randomly, this fails to generate the proper action url in the html (it is missing the
'.action', which results in a 404 once you post the form)

The only workaround we have found so far is to add the '.action' suffix to the s:form's action
attribute. Before it was always added for us by struts. 
So now we are having success with 
	<s:form action="login.action" namespace="/">...

Is this expected behavior? Did this change recently? is not so ancient..


We are trying to replace the "required" attribute in the textfields with "requiredLabel" without
success. Was the xhtml theme's ftl file "controlheader_core" updated to reflect the changes
in the struts-tags.tld (requiredLabel replaced required)? 

Also, it seems applications are randomly serving ftl files from other applications' theme
folders with the same name.
 This was demonstrated by modifying something obvious in one application's ftl file (displaying
some text next to a text field's label), and the effect can be seen randomly on other applications
which shouldn’t even see that application's template folder (the themes are however named
the same in both applications)
I am only able to make the "requiredLabel" attribute work if placed in a <s:param> tag
as opposed to being just an attribute of the s:textfield tag, but even so it is still not
always using the same ftl files (however always from similarly named themes placed inside
each application)

This is extremely confusing. Is FreeMarker caching files independently of the application?
Is the app container interfering with caching? (We are using Resin 4.0.36)

Any help would be greatly appreciated
Thank you in advance

I agree with Felipe. In version 2.3.8 all was fine, but from 2.3.12 all the problems with
tags begun (action tags and field tags).

Hi Lukasz,

I try struts v. 2.3.8, and everything works fine. But, the first version I've notice this
strange behaviour was 2.3.12.

I try to find the ftl file for the action tag, but I could no find it. 
There is a special file? How does it works?
