finding action-mapping given the action name

Is there any class in struts that will convert an action path and look it up in struts-config and find the corresponding forward?
for example, I have the following action-mapping:
<action path="/viewReportSetup" type="com.xxx.ViewReportSetupAction">
<forward name="success" path="/assessment/ReportSetup.jsp"/>
<forward name="failure" path="/assessment/ReportSetup.jsp"/>
</action>

I want to be able to find the corresponding ActionForward given the string "viewReportSetup.do", can this be done?
I found ConfigHelper class, i am not sure if it's the right class to use, and it requires PageContext to be passed it as an argument to the constructor. The available objects i have access to are HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response.
thanks in advance.

You might find it easier to simply use global forwards to achieve your objective.
