I am trying to override Sendfriend magento core module product controller to local ,But It is not working below is the given workaround .

app/etc/modules/Companyname_Sendfriend.xml

<config>
    <modules>
        <Companyname_Sendfriend>
            <active>true</active>
            <codePool>local</codePool>
        </Companyname_Sendfriend>
    </modules>
</config>

Config.xml file for the overridden local sendfriend module

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config>
    <modules>
        <Companyname_Sendfriend>
             <version>1.6.0.0</version>
        </Companyname_Sendfriend>
    </modules>
    <frontend>
        <routers>
            <sendfriend>
                <args>
                    <modules>
                        <Companyname_sendfriend before="Mage_Sendfriend_ProductController">
                            Companyname_Sendfriend_Product
                        </Companyname_Sendfriend>
                    </modules>
                </args>
            </sendfriend>
        </routers>
    </frontend>
</config>

At last the ProductController.php code which is to be called

There are few issue on ur code:

On before you need to put the module name instead of controller name:

before="Mage_Sendfriend"

also need to change overrider

Companyname_Sendfriend_Product to Companyname_Sendfriend

may be space issue it will be in one line

<Companyname_sendfriend before="Mage_Sendfriend_ProductController"> Companyname_Sendfriend_Product </Companyname_Sendfriend>

It should be

maybe space issue it will be in one line

<Companyname_sendfriend before="Mage_Wishlist">Companyname_Sendfriend</Companyname_sendfriend>

Now config.xml is

<?xml version="1.0"?> <config> <modules> <Companyname_Sendfriend> <version>1.6.0.0</version> </Companyname_Sendfriend> </modules> <frontend> <routers> <sendfriend> <args> <modules> <Companyname_sendfriend before="Mage_Sendfriend">Companyname_Sendfriend</Companyname_Sendfriend> </modules> </args> </sendfriend> </routers> </frontend> </config>

Class name is wrong:

Your Override class name is wrong:

Ir should be Companyname_Sendfriend_ProductController from

Xwalker_Sendfriend_ProductController

If you controller location is

app/code/local/Companyname/Sendfriend/controller
