Quick question about getters and setters in Struts 2

I'm working on a web project in struts 2. I have many actions, and each action has getters and setters to send/bring form values from request. Since many of my forms are similar, more often than not, I end up using same getters and setters but in several places.
I want to know how I can minimize redundant code in my application. Can the actions use something like an EJB that every action can share? or how else can I tackle this? Please help me!!! and if you know the answer please share an example
Thanks in advance!!!

Possibilities include using a base class, creating a base object with the repeated properties and using that in combination with action-specific properties, or using ModelDriven and a model (which could have a base class w/ shared properties) and extending it in the action with action-specific properties.

I'm sure there are other solutions too; those are the ones that popped immediately into my head.

Whether or not getters/setters fall under the category of "repeated code" is a little fuzzy for me, since it's basically non-code, usually automatically generated, and completely ignorable.
