hi, good day , i have a question on struts ..i have an action , which after completed process will then forward to a page which contain multiple form in a page(tabbed form), in order to display correct form to user , i might need some URL parameters to help select the correct form, it will however look like '/WEB-INF/results/result1.jsp?showform=2' as mappingforward..i might also need to have several similar kind of mappingforward for '/WEB-INF/results/result1.jsp?showform=1' , showform=3 ...etc

can someone guide me how to write the forward? i using following way but is not working



or someone guide me the proper way to settle this problem ...thank you very much for your time

Alvin,
Struts forwards aren't really designed to pass data through parameters.

A better approach is to have your action store the value as an attribute in the request:
request.setAttribute("showForm", new Integer(2));

The JSP can then get this value and render the appropriate form.
