 <h3 class="heading-1">Overview
</h3><p class="paragraph"/>The following diagram provides a high level illustration of how WebWork 2 processes web requests.<p class="paragraph"/><img src="" alt="overview" border="0"/>
<li>All incoming requests to WebWork are handled by <span class="nobr"><img src="" alt="&gt;&gt;" border="0"/><a href="">ServletDispatcher</a></span></li>
<li>The ServletDispatcher looks up a reference to a new <span class="nobr"><img src="" alt="&gt;&gt;" border="0"/><a href="">ActionProxy</a></span> instance</li>
<li>The ActionProxy wraps calls to the Action using the defined Interceptors.</li>
<li>Once all the Interceptors and the Action have been executed the Action call the Result to render the document.</li>
