TutorialAction.java

package org.koushik.javabrains.action;

public class TutorialAction {

    public String execute(){
        System.out.println("Hello from execute");
        return "failure" ;
    }
}

I created the success.jsp, error.jsp & index.jsp files as well. I’m using eclipse-indigo & Apache tomcat 7.0.62.
