use action without actionMapping

normally I associate an action with a form-bean in the action-mapping,
can I just call an action without providing an action-mapping? or can I associate an action with a path but without a bean associated?
thanks in advance

Sorry I found out that I can use an action-mapping without specifying a form-bean... so my question is answered. another question arises:

can I use global-forward in a local forward's path?
for example:
<global-forwards >
<forward name="logon" path="/Login.jsp"/>


<action path="/view" type="com.xxxxxx">
<forward name="success" path="/logon"/>

the way it is now, it doesn't work,
does the forward path needs to be the actual path to the file name?
thanks in advance
