and cant seem to get an answer to this problem, basically, I am currently using struts and am using action chaining, however i realize that when a request comes in with parameters , the corrresponding action class gets activated and then it forwards to another action class , then that action class forwards to a jsp page, now the thing is when it reaches the jsp page, the request parameters mysteriously goes missing, i got a null, but i am able to retrieve those parameters in the first action class. am i missing something here? or is this an inherent problem in struts? is so, how do i work around it? putting the request parameters as attributes seem like an ugly workaround, can someone enlighten me? Thanks!!
