Hi Dave,
can you tell me the importance and significance of validatorActionForm and its applications?

Can you please tell me the scenarios it can be used?

Since Dave's book is about Struts 2 I will take this one...

Do you understand the validation framework and ValidatorForm? The difference between the two form classes is that ValidatorForm is based of the name of the form and ValidatorActionForm is based off the name of the action. I do not recall ever using ValidatorActionForm, but the two give you a little more flexibility in your validation...say if you have multiple actions that use the same form and you want the validation to be different.

The second hit on a Google search looks pretty good:
