XML & Web services: URGENT:submit from form problem

  1. URGENT:submit from form problem (1 messages)

    I am using struts 1.1, tiles and wl6.1

    My application is at localhost:port/applicname/*

    After i do a get request to localhost:port/applicname/Login.do, i do get the login page.

    However, when i do a javascript:submit(), it tries to go to
    localhost:port/Login.do instead of localhost:port/applicname/Login.do

    my form element is as follows:
    <form name="loginForm" action="/Login.do">
    ...
    </form>


    Any idea why this is happening??

    my struts-config entry is as follow:

     <action
                path="/Login"
                type="com.anthem.pwdexpire.actions.LoginAction"
                name="LoginForm"
                scope="request"
                validate="false">

                <forward name="nextview"
                               path=".login.layout"/>
        </action>

    The application is deployed properly ...in an .ear file.
    that is the context of the application is set as "applicname" in the application.xml file.

    Do i need some entry in the web.xml or anywhere else that would help the browser request as localhost:port/applicname/* everytime?

    By the way how does the browser know that it has to submit to localhost:port/applicname/Login.do if the action is
    /Login.do?


    thanks a lot!

  2. Hello,

    you should use the Struts html taglib for generating the html form. it will prepend the application's name to the action path.

    Example:

    <html:form action="/Login.do">
    ...
    </html:form>

    Cheers,

    René
