Hi. Im new to Struts.
Am I violating any design principle if I dont
name my forward to 'success' everytime.
I was thinking naming it to the next jsp being displayed,
for example: actionMapping.findForward("Order");
Then I can go direct to the Order.jsp page without
peeking in the struts-config file.
Is that bad practise??
Thanks for advice.
Best Regards
Bjorn

Bjorn:

You can name it whatever you want, but it will always look in the config file and you must have it set up there with the name you chose.

And, as for being bad practice, using "success" adds a certain amount of consistency - assuming you have only one successful outcome.

Regards.
