Hi All,

I am doing a action chaining. I have my scope as session in both the action mappings of action classes. I set few properties(5 values) in action 1 before sending to action 2. In action 2 I couldn't see few property(2 values) values. Then I set those 2 values in request attribute in action 1 and received in action 2.

Later I had a requirement where we aren't supposed to use request attributes. I used redirect attribute of forward tag.

<forward name="abc" path="/app/xyz.do" redirect="true"/>

I started getting the values of those 2 properties without request attributes. As I understand redirect kills all request attributes/parameters. But couldn't understand how redirect attribute is setting the value of those 2 attributes.

You are getting the values in Action 2 from the form? I would think that since your form is configured to use session scope then any values that were populated on the form in Action 1 would stick around for Action 2. I know there are some odd issues with Struts when you chain together action and how it populates the form (that is without using redirect="true" and I am not sure how it plays with session scoped forms).
