Sending variables problem

I am havin a textfield with the value 0.0. In my action i have a X variable of type Float. When the textfield is non-zero, the conversion is made correctly and the X variable is initialised in the action. When it is 0 it gives an exception because it is searching for a setter of type String (for the variable X I only have one of type Float).
I have tried to create a setX(String y) method but the result is the same.

Can you please help?
Thanks in advance

This appears to be a known issue with Struts. Is it possible for you to use a different type for this variable?
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
