I changed something by accident and i can't figure out what I did. My jsp calls the struts form, but the action class never gets called...

here is a clip from my struts-config as it stands now...



This was working last night and I have spent all day trying to figure out what I changed this morning. Anyone have any suggestions? I know this is kinda broad, but any pointers are greatly appreciated!

What happens in the browser when the page is submitted?

It would probably help if I give a description of the problem huh?

I have a jsp/form that accepts user input(a date selection, and a couple of checkboxes). When the user is done, they click on the save button and their choices get stored in the database. However, when I click save, the browser calls the .do and then says 'done'. The records don't get saved. Any break points in the Action class are never tripped (and yes I am sure I am running in de-bugging mode). I do know that my Form class is called.

Like I said, this was working just fine last night when I went home. Then I had to go and change something this morning...

Hi,

Try to put the System.out.println statements at the first line in execute method and go on testing until u find a point where the code is not executed. This should really help you. This happens to me also, but this is best way i solve the problems.

Regards,
Shankar

Yeah, I did that and in addition to adding the System.out.println as the first line of the execute statement, I put a break point. Nothing gets printed out, and the breakpoint never gets tripped. This is why I am thinking that my action class never gets called.

Alright PAINFULL lesson learned.

In my action class, I imported the company specific ActionForm class, not the struts ActionForm class. Even though the company ActionForm class extends the struts ActionForm class, it didn't work.

Thanks for your help!!!
