Before Annotation

Marks an action method that needs to be executed before the main action method.


The Before annotation can be applied at method level.



 public class SampleAction extends ActionSupport {

  public void isAuthorized() throws AuthenticationException {
    // authorize request, throw exception if failed

  public String execute() {
     // perform secure action
     return SUCCESS;
