In Struts 1, if the type attribute of the tag has no value, what does it mean? Is there a default value for the type attribute that is used when it is not explicitly specified. I'm basically trying to figure out what the following action does; as you can see it has no type attribute; it only has path and forward attributes:
<action path="/a/b/comp" forward="/components/d/my-comp.jsp">
The action that you have included above simply redirects from /a/b/comp.do to /components/d/my-comp.jsp. It is a shorthand for the following:
<action path="/a/b/comp" parameter="/components/d/my-comp.jsp" type="org.apache.struts.actions.ForwardAction"> </action>
So, for the action that you have included the type attribute is org.apache.struts.actions.ForwardAction.
