HTML form submission

I need to submit a HTML form with data's for three different actions Viz, 1. Updation 2. Deletion 3. View

This HTML form contains a table of data resulted from a search. With this data i must be able to perform any of the above mentioned three actions. Using a submit button can solve only one of the three actions.

Is there any way to recognize the resultant flow in the Action class so that i can perform the corresponding action.

Thanks on advance...

You can create a button for each of the actions, then check the button name/value in the methos that's handling it to determine which action is required. If you do not want to use more than 1 button, then you can create an option button that will correspond to each of the possible actions, or even a hidden field, and then set it to an appropriate action before the submit.
