Employee Application developed in Struts

I have an Employee Mangement application which does the following functionality
1. Add Employee
2. Edit Employee
3. Delete Employee
4. List Employees.

The flow of the appln is as follows :
1. Login to the Application
2. List Employee Screen displayed
3. From List Employee Screen Add,Edit/Delete Employee is possible.

My requirement is that I want a single form class to hold all Employee data (Emp Id, Name, Addr) which can be used across all screens.
I encountered an issue while coding this form class -
The Delete Employee screen requires only the Emp Id form-property,so I had to create a new form class for that screen exclusively.
I found that there is duplication of form beans.
Is there a better approach in Struts than creating separate form classes for every screen?

Rebecca, you can just use the same form for delete, edit ... using the fields you need for each task. you�ll have some usseless fields in some moments, but I think it�s not a problem. Good Luck!
I agree. Here's the link:
