Hi,

Can I have more than one form associated with one action?.

I have a scenario where I have a search form, entry form. I want to make use of DispatchAction to search, Add/Update/Delete. In this case I will have two ActionForm that is searchForm and EntryForm.
<form-bean name="CreateErrorMessageActionForm" type="demo.struts.CreateErrorMessageActionForm" />
<form-bean name="SearchErrorMessageActionForm" type="demo.struts.SearchErrorMessageActionForm" />

<action input="/index.jsp" path="/messages" scope="request"
name="CreateErrorMessageActionForm"
type="demo.struts.MessageDispatchAction" parameter="methodToCall">
<forward name="continueList" path="/ListMessages.jsp" />
<forward name="modifyMessage" path="/ModifyMessage.jsp" />
</action>

How will I be able to configure these two forms to one action?

How this can be acheived?

early replys would be appreciated. this is kind of an urgent

Thank you very much
Saritha

If I don't get any solution for my question, then I think I would probably go with having single form for my search and entry forms. But I feel this is just kind of manipulating as some of the fields in my form bean will always be null. I mean object will never be complete or contain complete information. with this approach I am not sure if there will be problems between requests.
