Hi All,
I was not able to call struts2 action from tiles 2 definition. Basically i'm calling index.jsp and that calls welcome.action. After welcome.action is done and suppose to call st2action.action (another struts 2 action) from tiles definition but it is not. I'm getting following error message. Please see below information

The requested resource (/struts1/s2action) is not available

Thanks in advance,





<%@ page contentType="text/html" %>
<%@ taglib uri="" prefix="c" %>
<c:redirect url="http://localhost:8080/struts1/welcome.action"/>

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

Hello, Ramesh David,

Did you figure out how to fire action in tiels.xml (in struts2/tiles2)? I have same problems now.
