The action and method attributes of the form element specify which URL
should be requested with what method (GET/POST) if the form is
submitted. The encoding specifies how the data of the form is
transmitted to the server.

If you don't specify action, the form will be submitted to the same
URL the form came from.

So the answer to your question is: it depends on how you did program
your application.
