forward request to struts action on other server

forward request to struts action on other server

forward request to struts action on other server

(OP)
Hi all,

I have two servers, each running the sun appliction server (9.0). I've build a webapplication, and know I want to forward requests from the first to the second application server.

In my LoginAction on the first server I put this in the code:

return new ActionForward("http://" + server.getUrl() + ":8080/project/Login.do", false);

put that gives me the error:
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Path http://192.168.1.135:8080/project/Login.do does not start with a "/" character

I don't know what I do wrong, does anybody know a way to do this?

It need to be forwarded, so that the action on the other server can access the parameters in the form.

Thanks a lot!

Bram

RE: forward request to struts action on other server

Hi

Forwarding is passing forward the data to another class for further processing. You can not forward outside the server. You can only redirect.

CODE

return new ActionForward("http://" + server.getUrl() + ":8080/project/Login.do", true);
Note that you can not pass the ActionForm and other information that way.

and is there any other solution to pass the parameters?

Just the methods provided by the HTTP protocol. So you can pass them as GET parameters or POST them.

Hi,

Thank you for your reply.
I was wondering if you could give me an example or something. Because I can't get it to work like I want. I can make a connection to the other server and post the parameters to it, that's not a problem, but struts needs a mapping return, what do I need to return for server one, so the browser shows the results of the action processed by server 2?

Thanks,
Bram

As I understand it now, HttpClient would be helpful for you.

If not, please give us more details of what you want to do.

Hi,

I will explain my problem again, with a few more details.
I have the following code now:

CODE

ActionRedirect redirect = new ActionRedirect();
redirect.addParameter("title", newArticleActionForm.getTitle());
                redirect.addParameter("date", newArticleActionForm.getDate());
                redirect.addParameter("author", newArticleActionForm.getAuthor());
                redirect.addParameter("keywords", newArticleActionForm.getKeywords());
                redirect.addParameter("text", newArticleActionForm.getText());
                redirect.setPath("http://" + server.getUrl() + ":8080/ElectronicNewsPaper-war/NewArticle.do");
                redirect.setRedirect(true);
                //invalidate session on forwarding server
                session.invalidate();
                return redirect;
as you can see, the parameters are passed by GET, now I've searched for a solution like this for struts, but... I want the parameters be passed by POST...

Hi

Redirecting is only GET. Is just a new URL sent back to the browser, where it should step forward.
