Struts 2 Redirect Action

     

In this section, you will get familiar with struts 2 Redirect action and learn to use it in the struts 2 application.

Redirect After Post: This post pattern is supported by Struts 2. This is a common pattern in web application. In which an action is redirected to another action. This is a common use to redirect action to display a page.

Redirect Action Result: This redirect pattern is supported by Struts 2. The ActionMapper provided by the ActionMapperFactory is used to redirect the browser to a URL that invokes the specified action. You can see a simple implementation of this in the following struts 2 application. 

Redirects Dynamic Parameters: The action-redirect result takes following parameters:

  • actionName
  • namespace
  • method
  • encode
  • parse
  • location
  • prependServletContext

Follow the steps to develop a Redirect Action example:

Step 1: Create the struts.xml file and add the following xml snippet in the struts.xml file.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<!DOCTYPE struts PUBLIC
  "-//Apache Software Foundation//DTD Struts Configuration 2.0//EN"
  "http://struts.apache.org/dtds/struts-2.0.dtd">

<struts>

  <!-- Rose India Struts 2 Tutorials -->
  <constant name="struts.enable.DynamicMethodInvocation" value="false" />
  <constant name="struts.devMode" value="true" />
<include file="struts-default.xml"/>
  <package name="roseindia" namespace="/roseindia" extends="struts-default">

  
  <!-- Redirect Action -->

 <action name="showAjaxLoginCancelForm">
  <result>/pages/ajaxloginCancel.jsp</result>
 </action>

  <action name="ajaxloginCancel" class="net.roseindia.Login">
  <result  name="input">/pages/ajaxloginCancel.jsp</result>
  <result  name="error">/pages/ajaxloginCancel.jsp</result>
  <result name="cancel" type="redirect">/pages/ajaxloginCancel.jsp</result>
  <result>/pages/ajaxloginsuccess.jsp</result>
  </action>
  
 <!-- Add actions here -->
  </package>


  <!-- Add packages here -->

</struts>

Step 2 : Create an input form.

ajaxloginCancel.jsp

<%@ taglib prefix="s" uri="/struts-tags"%>
<html>
  <head>
  <s:head theme="ajax" debug="true"/>
  </head>
  <body>
  <s:div id="loginDiv" theme="ajax">
  <div style="width: 300px;border-style: solid">
  <s:form action="ajaxloginCancel"  validate="true">
  <tr>
  <td colspan="2">
  Login
  </td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
  <td colspan="2">
  <s:actionerror />
  <s:fielderror />
  </td>  
  <s:textfield name="username" label="Login name"/>
  <s:password name="password" label="Password"/>
  <s:submit value="Submit" theme="ajax" targets="loginDiv" notifyTopics="/ajaxloginCancel"/>
  <s:submit action="showAjaxLoginCancelForm" value="Cancel" onclick="form.onsubmit=null"/>
  
  </s:form>
  </div>
  </s:div>
  </body>
</html>

Step 3 : Create an Action class.

Login.java

package net.roseindia;
import com.opensymphony.xwork2.ActionSupport;
import java.util.Date;


/**
 * <p> Validate a user login. </p>
 */
public class Login extends ActionSupport {


  public String execute() throws Exception {
  if(!getUsername().equals("Admin") || !getPassword().equals("Admin")){
  addActionError("Invalid user name or password! Please try again!");
  return ERROR;
  }
  if(getUsername().equals("Admin") || getPassword().equals("Admin")){
  return SUCCESS;
  }else{
  return NONE;
  }
  }


  // ---- Username property ----

  /**
 * <p>Field to store User username.</p>
 * <p/>
 */
  private String username = null;


  /**
 * <p>Provide User username.</p>
 *
 * @return Returns the User username.
 */
  public String getUsername() {
  return username;
  }

  /**
 * <p>Store new User username</p>
 *
 * @param value The username to set.
 */
  public void setUsername(String value) {
  username = value;
  }

  // ---- Username property ----

  /**
 * <p>Field to store User password.</p>
 * <p/>
 */
  private String password = null;


  /**
 * <p>Provide User password.</p>
 *
 * @return Returns the User password.
 */
  public String getPassword() {
  return password;
  }

  /**
 * <p>Store new User password</p>
 *
 * @param value The password to set.
 */
  public void setPassword(String value) {
  password = value;
  }

}

Step 4 : Create the appropriate validator as shown: 

The validation.xml format is either <ActionClassName>-validation.xml or <ActionClassName>-<ActionAliasName>-validation.xml.

Login-validation.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE validators PUBLIC 
  "-//OpenSymphony Group//XWork Validator 1.0.2//EN" 
  "http://www.opensymphony.com/xwork/xwork-validator-1.0.2.dtd">
  
<validators>
  <field name="username">
  <field-validator type="requiredstring">
  <param name="trim">true</param>
  <message>Login name is required</message>
  </field-validator>
  </field>
  <field name="password">
  <field-validator type="requiredstring">
  <param name="trim">true</param>
  <message>Password is required</message>
  </field-validator>
  </field>
</validators>

When entered the correct user name and password then the user gets the ajaxloginsuccess.jsp page displaying the entered text

ajaxloginsuccess.jsp

<html>
  <head>
  <title>Login Success</title>
  </head>
  <body>
  <p align="center"><font color="#000080" size="5"> Login Successful !</font></p>
  <h1> Welcome to <%=request.getParameter("username")%>  </h1>
  </body>
</html>

Output:

When this application executes you get the following:

When you don't fill any field and click "Submit" button, you get:

If you click the "Cancel" button then redirect action executes and provides:

Location for validation file

Hi... Location for Login-validation.xml file is not specified. I think it should be in the same package as the action class which is using this file. Please tell what are other locations where I can keep this file.
