      Description

      Use of $link.setForward('forward-name') will not find forward local forwards for the currently-executing action mapping.

      For instance, if you have the following configuration:

      <global-forwards>
      <forward name="foo" path="/foo.jsp" />
      </global-forwards>

      <action-mappings>
      <action path="/myAction" ...>
      <forward name="foo" path="/bar.jsp" />
      </action>
      </action-mappings>

      Using $link.setForward('foo') will result in "foo.jsp" instead of "bar.jsp". I believe that the latter is more in line with the spirit of Struts' forward hierarchy.
