Welcome to the JavaRanch, Avi!

JSF View definitions can contain more than one Form. I often do this.

Backing beans (Models) can exist in a many-to-many relationship with Views.

So there's no general mechanism you can use.

You can use the view binding mechanism to attach a particular UI control to a backing bean. You can then walk up the component tree to see what form it's in. That's not something the average webapp should be doing, though.
