Big Picture Struts question

Hi,
I am confused about something regarding navigaion with struts actions.
I have a login jsp page with an associated login struts action.
The struts action returns a success or failure depending on user name and password. What do I do if I want the main application page (which I am directed to if I get a "success" returned by the login action) to also be associated with its own action. It seems like with struts "forwards" I can only specify a new jsp page to go to, I can't tell it a new action to execute. Does this make sense ?
In psuedo code:


What if I want the success forward to go to another action? Can I do that?
Thanks!

Rather than specifying a jsp, specify the name of the other action you wish to go to and the servlet-mapping.
ie:<forward name="success" path="/someOtherAction.do"/>
