I am writting an ActionForm on which I need to mension some error that need to be displayed.

but when I wrote this :
"The constructor ActionError(String) is deprecated"

Message displayed "The constructor ActionError(String) is deprecated"!! Now, what should be the alternate option?? if I dont use "import org.apache.struts.action.ActionError;"

Action Form is
package com.jamesholmes.struts;

import java.util.List;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest;
import org.apache.struts.action.ActionError;
import org.apache.struts.action.ActionErrors;
import org.apache.struts.action.ActionForm;
import org.apache.struts.action.ActionMapping;

public class SearchForm extends ActionForm{
private String name = null;
private String ssNum= null;
private String results = null;
public String getName() {
return name;
public String getResults() {
return results;
public String getSsNum() {
return ssNum;
public void setName(String name) {
this.name = name;
public void setResults(String results) {
this.results = results;
public void setSsNum(String ssNum) {
this.ssNum = ssNum;

public void reset(ActionMapping mapping,HttpServletRequest request)
ssNum= null;
results = null;

public ActionErrors validate(ActionMapping mapping, HttpServletRequest request)
ActionErrors errors = new ActionErrors();
boolean nameEntered = false;
boolean ssNumEntered = false;

if(name!=null && name.length()>0)
nameEntered = true;
if(ssNum!=null && ssNum.length()>0)
ssNumEntered = true;

if(!nameEntered && !ssNumEntered)

errors.add(null, new ActionError("error.search.critria.missing"));

return errors;

The entire ActionError class is deprecated, so just replace any reference to ActionError with ActionMessage.

Note that ActionErrors is not deprecated, so leave references to this class alone.
