Confluence Plugin developing with xwork and apache velocity file


I am trainee at one computer company. My supervisor wanted me to make confluence plugin in order to do that i decided to use xwork. I create one button in this way and this .xwork directs it to new page which is .vm

My code in atlassian-plugin.xml is here:

<xwork name="add-draft-label-action-xwork" key="add-draft-label-action-xwork">
    <description key="">Defines what the "Add 'draft' label" action does.</description>
        <package name="add-draft-label" extends="default" namespace="/plugins/add-draft-label">
        <default-interceptor-ref name="defaultStack"/>
            <action name="add-label" class="com.atlassian.plugins.tutorial.AddDraftLabelAction">
			<result name="success" type="velocity">/hello.vm</result>               
			<!-- <result name="success" type="velocity">/templates/hello.vm</result> -->

			<!--   <result name="success" type="redirect">${page.urlPath}</result> -->

and My hello.vm is :

    <title>This is my Example action!</title>
    <meta name="decorator" content="atl.general" />
	Hello $name! what is up

and at the and my execute file which is in is here :

public String execute() throws Exception
        //  next, get the Template  *
        Template t = Velocity.getTemplate("hello.vm");
        // create a context and add data 
        VelocityContext context = new VelocityContext();
        String mes = "World";
        // now render the template into a StringWriter 
        StringWriter writer = new StringWriter();
        t.merge( context, writer );
        // show the World 
        System.out.println( writer.toString() );  

        return "success";

When i do all of them it only shows at screen Hello $name! what is up
but it should show Hello World! what is up

what should i do ? please help me.

This widget could not be displayed.

I notice your meta tag may have a type-o:


Notice: ALT.general

Nope, it's atl.general
