I have a two forms

<form name="a" action="a.jsp" method="post">

and one more form
<form name="b" action="b.jsp" method="post">

and from these forms I am calling a javascript function that is written in a different file. In the function I want to get the name of the form "a" or "b".

Is it possible?

I have no idea what you mean by this. How are you calling a javascript function "from a form"?
