On a page with a form on it, I have two submit buttons, one button does not validate the form and the other button does. Is it possible to simulate this?

The only work-around I found was to create a simple button that when it was pressed would call the action directly.

For example:
(syntax may not be correct but it will give you the idea)
< input type="button" onKlick="window='youraction.do'" >

this will bypass the validator and call another action.

Its not the best way but a work around for now.

There is a mechanism in javascript for disabling the javascript validation. I don't remember the specifics, but if you code an <html:cancel/> or <html:reset/> button, you can find out. Just use your browser's "view source" function to look at the rendered version of the html, and you will see how it's done. Once you've learned the process, you can remove the <html:cancel> buttton and apply the same process to your button.

why don't you use LookupDispatchAction for multiple buttons?
