I make a simple logon struts application.The index page is logon.jsp and it will go to secret.jsp if
the name and password is correct.But it will go to a blank page when user click the submit button unless
the "name" and "password" is correct.My struts-config.xml has any problem?I think mybe my LogonAction
is not correct but I don't know where.My directory is:"C:\tomcat\webapps\ROOT\struct".
<html:form action="/logon" focus="name">
<td><html:text property="name"/></td>
<td><html assword property="password"/></td>
public class LogonAction extends Action{
public ActionForward execute(ActionMapping map,ActionForm form,HttpServletRequest req,HttpServletResponse resp)
throws IOException,ServletException{
String name=req.getParameter("name");
String pass=req.getParameter("password");
PrintWriter out=resp.getWriter();
out.println("Debug... ...");
HttpSession session=req.getSession();
return new ActionForward("/mainpage.jsp");
return new ActionForward("/mainpage.jsp");
<form-bean name="logonForm" type="struts.lyo.Logonform"/>
<forward name="logout" path="/logout.do" />
<forward name="secret" path="/secret.jsp" />
<action path="/logon" name="logonForm" type="struts.lyo.LogonAction"/>
<action path="/logout" type="struts.lyo.LogoffAction"/>
public class Logonform extends ActionForm{
private String name;
private String password;
public void setName(String name){
public String getName(){
return this.name;
public void setPassword(String password){
public String getPassword(){
return this.password;
Any error?help ... :roll:

The problem solved!I change the "execute" method to "perform" method in my "LogonAction".It worked
as I expected.But I can't really know Why.I use struts1.0.Does struts1.1 has the "perform" method only?
I think "struts1.0" use the "execute" method in Action. Anyone can give me some idea?
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
