package roseindia.web.struts.action;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest;
import org.apache.struts.action.*;
public class LoginForm extends ActionForm
static public final long serialVersionUID = -1L;
private String action="add";
private String username=null;
private String password=null;
private String usertype=null;
public void setAction(String action){ this.action=action; }
public String getAction(){ return this.action; }
public void setUsername(String username){ this.username=username; }
public String getUsername() { return this.username; }
public void setPassword(String password){ this.password=password; }
public String getPassword(){ return this.password; }
public void setUsertype(String usertype){ this.usertype=usertype; }

public void reset(ActionMapping mapping,HttpServletRequest request){ this.username=null; this.password=null; this.usertype=null; this.action="add"; }
public ActionErrors validate( ActionMapping mapping, HttpServletRequest request )
ActionErrors errors = new ActionErrors(); if( getUsername() == null || getUsername().length() < 1 )
{ errors.add("username",new ActionMessage("error.username.required"));
if( getPassword() == null || getPassword().length() < 1 )
errors.add("password",new ActionMessage("error.password.required"));
} if( getUsertype() == null || getUsertype().length() < 1 )
errors.add("usertype",new ActionMessage("error.usertype.required"));
} return errors; } }


It already got compiled and am having a LoginForm.class file in same dir.

Am having my action class in same dir as below-:


package roseindia.web.struts.action;
import roseindia.web.struts.action.*;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse;
import org.apache.struts.action.Action;
import org.apache.struts.action.ActionForm;
import org.apache.struts.action.ActionForward;
import org.apache.struts.action.ActionMapping;
public class LoginAction extends Action
public ActionForward execute(ActionMapping mapping,ActionForm form,HttpServletRequest request,HttpServletResponse response) throws Exception
LoginForm loginform = (LoginForm) form;
if (loginform.getUsername().equalsIgnoreCase("admin") && loginform.getPassword().equals("admin")) { return mapping.findForward("success");
} else
{ return mapping.findForward("failure"); }
But when i'am trying to compile LoginAction.java am getting an error as-:

cannot find symbol
symbol: class LoginForm
location: class roseindia.web.struts.action.LoginAction

As am having the class file of LoginForm in same dir as LoginAction and am importing the package too, still am getting this error. Please help

It seems that it's a problem with the classpath or something. I suggest you use an IDE like eclipse or netbeans so you don't waste your time in such problems.
