How to call struts action from plain javascript file


This query is related to struts 1.3.

Let's say I have one action called 'getName.do' which is mapped to 'GetName.java' action class. In the dmexecute method of this action class, I am setting one result say String result = Hello;.

My query is how I can call this struts action (getName.do?parameter=value) from one of my javascript files.

Essentially, I want the value of result, which is Hello, to be present in my javascript file through this getName.do?parameter=value call. How I can make this call in my javascript file.

Any help will be highly appreciated.


You can use <a href="https://api.jquery.com/jQuery.ajax/" rel="nofollow">jQuery ajax</a> for this purpose.

Importing jquery file:

<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.10.2/jquery.min.js"></script>

Calling action through jquery ajax:

<script type="text/javascript"> $.ajax({ url : "getName.do?parameter=value", type : "POST", success : function(data) { // You'll get your response here alert(data); } }); </script>

Hope this will help.
