I have a tiles layout and I want the initial display to use prepare() in the page to populate a field.

If I use prepare() and specify the action then validation is run when the page is initally loaded. Validation errors are returned. If I dont specify result type an error is thrown by Struts.

Bottom line is I want to use one action to set the variables the page may need and the same action execute the page. I dont want multiple actions for every page unless there is a good reason.

Struts.xml:





Validation.xml:
