And to use those tags in JSP you need to import there tag library. struts-tags is the tag library which contains all the struts specific html tags. This tag is User Interface (UI) tag used to make the form or other html pages. To use this tag you need to write <%@ taglib prefix="s" uri="/struts-tags" %> and also do mapping for StrutsPrepareAndExecuteFilter in web.xml file. as

A simple login page is give below which illustrates how to use the struts-tags


<%@ taglib prefix="s" uri="/struts-tags" %>
<title>Tets JSP Page </title>
<body bgcolor="lightblue"><br><br><br><br><br>
<s:form action="login" method="POST">
<table border=0 align="center">
<td><s:actionerror /></td>
<td><s:fielderror /></td>

<td><s:textfield name="userName" label="User Name"/></td>
<td><s:password name="password" label="Password"/></td>
