name of the action

The method action requires following items:

  • <call> - define a call

    • class - fully qualified name of the target class

    • method - method name

action-method can also be called from any objects with arbitrary arguments. The result of the method can be assigned to any field.

Suppose the following controller :

public class Hello {
    public String say(String what) {
        return "About: " + what;
    }
}

We can call this method with action-method like this:

<action-method name="act.hello">
  <call class="com.axelor.contact.web.HelloController" method="say(fullName)"/>
</action-method>
